In Memoriam: John Quinn
John Francis Quinn died on Thursday, January 12th, 2018. He was 87. John was a Korean War veteran, and he was given a military funeral with honors on January 26th, 2018 at Calverton National Cemetery.
I first met John through my Feldenkrais training program in 1996 in Montclair, New Jersey. We had both heard of Feldenkrais in the 1980's, and he had attended some of Moshe's lectures then. He was from Brooklyn. I was from Brooklyn. I had a car. He had one eye. So we became commuting buddies. We studied videos, gave each other FIs, and talked about the method. But first, we had a large cup of tea, with milk. John was quintessentially an Irishman.
John's work had many facets. He was a social worker, a pro bono advisor on immigration problems, and, as John Copley-Quinn, an actor, sometimes with his dog, Daisy.
