From researcher Kathy Franz:
John and the officer killed with him were both graduate aeronautical engineers on a local training mission. Witnesses saw the plane circle two or three times then disappear. A short time later they saw a column of smoke from the wrecked plane.
A native of New York City, he was survived by his mother Elizabeth, widow Dorothy, and 18-month-old son, John R. He also had an older brother named William.
His father William, an accountant, predeceased John.
