John J. Larkin

John Larkin, 86, passed away on 1 June 2001. A retired cryptologist, John had made his home in Florida. Well known among NSA retirees, John was reluctant to be identified in his contributions to the Foundation, but he was one of our strongest supporters. He was also the one who inspired the idea of a Memorial Register, and had been generous in other anonymous donations. Consistent with that record, his wish, honored by Mrs. Larkin, was that any memorial contributions in his name be sent to the Foundation. We shall miss John and his generous spirit, and gratefully acknowledge his final wish.
