John Williams Putman Obituary

JOHN WILLIAMS PUTMAN 1925 - 2016
Griswold - John "Jack" Putman, 91, passed away in his home, surrounded by his family, in Griswold, Connecticut on August 25, 2016. He was born May 30, 1925 in Mansfield, Ohio, but spent most of his formative years in Sharon, Pennsylvania, where his father was manager of the Westinghouse Transformer Division. He was the eldest son of Henry Van de Vere Putman and Ruth Williams Putman. In 1945, he met the love of his life, a nursing student at Joseph Lawrence School of Nursing, on a blind date. In 1949, he married her - Evelyn Elizabeth Medbery of Griswold.
Jack received his baccalaureate degree in chemical engineering from Pennsylvania State University and a master's and a doctorate in metallurgical engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His years at Penn State were interrupted by service as a submariner in the United States Navy during WWII. Over the years he held several important positions in his chosen profession; his longest tenure was with Engineered Precision Casting Company in Middletown, New Jersey, as Technical Director. Upon retirement in 1994, Jack and Evey came to live in Griswold in Evelyn's family home. 
Jack's primary passion was his wife and family, but he also was an active wood-worker during the winter months and an avid sailor, in his meticulously maintained Herreshoff 12 ½ sail boat, during summer. 
Jack leaves his much beloved wife, Evey, of 67 years, as well as three daughters: Mary Lou, wife of John McCarthy, of Springfield, VA; Heidi, wife of Andre Slezak, of Fairfield, CT; and Janet Keffer of Griswold. Also, six grandchildren: Patrick McCarthy, wife Stephanie and great-grandson, Leo; Helen McCarthy; Dezsö and Eva Slezak; and Emma and Jacob Nelson. Also surviving are his brother Thomas Putman of Pittsburgh, PA, and his sister Joy Putman Favretti, of Storrs, as well as his sister-in-law, Mary Medbery, of Griswold; and many nieces and nephews.
