Mr. John D. Gee BS’53ME

Mr. John D. Gee BS’53ME (Fleming), passed away on Thursday, January 8, 2015.

With John’s passing, Caltech has lost a dear friend and loyal supporter. Truly a Caltech “lifer”, John touched the lives of so many within the Caltech family of alumni, faculty, and staff. Engaged and active as student, then as an alumnus throughout the remainder of his life, John—along his wife Barbara—dedicated their lives as mentors, volunteers and supporters, with the ultimate goal of helping Techers reach their academic dreams, and  sustaining the alma mater that was so special to them. For decades, both John and Barbara tirelessly gave their time, energy, and resources to areas such as the Alumni Association, Caltech Alumni Fund, Caltech Y, Caltech Associates, Athletics, and countless areas around campus.

John’s generosity, and the legacy that he and Barbara created, will continue to benefit and inspire the community for generations to come. On behalf of the Caltech family, we are truly grateful for John’s lifelong dedication and commitment. He will be missed dearly.
