JOHN FREDERICK WEINBRECHT passed from this life on October 18, 2008 at the age of 91. He was born on May 10, 1917 in Terra Haute Indiana to Amelia and Albert Weinbrecht. After graduating with a degree in mechanical engineering from Rose-Hulman Polytechnic Institute, John served active duty in the Army Corps of Engineers from 1941 to 1952, including 3.5 years in the Pacific conflict during WWII. He ultimately attained the rank of Colonel, serving in the Army Reserve until 1967.
John joined what is now Los Alamos National Laboratory in 1953 and worked on several innovative nuclear and laser programs until retirement in 1983. He and wife Nancy subsequently moved to Albuquerque where he was an active member St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, and passionately engaged in the design and development of a novel compressor technology.
In his later years, he enjoyed traveling, grandfathering, complex mechanical design, and just plain life in general.
