John Moffatt

“John Moffatt was very accomplished professionally. He was considered a wonderful mentor and administrator and a first-rate scientist. He was very proud of his work. He also loved the natural world and enjoyed long walks, working on puzzles and challenges, eating strawberry ice cream, and traveling. But more than anything, he adored his wife, June; his four daughters and their husbands; and his 12 grandchildren and four great-grandsons. He will be sorely missed by those lucky enough to have known him.”—Susan Saperstein, daughter
