John R. "Jack" McGill, Ph.D.
Jack McGill - 1962


Married to Joyce. Three daughters and one son. Two grandchildren. Two great grandchildren with hope for more of those enchanting rug rats.

Have traveled the world with the armed forces, and have lived coast to coast and varying points in between professionally. Have found that there is no Utopia, but have concluded that life is what one makes of it---the glass is always half full not half empty!
