Tribute & Message From The Family

John J. Post, 84, of Manchester, NH died peacefully September 12, 2020 at the Catholic Medical Center surrounded by his loving family after a period of declining health.

John was born in New York City on November 25, 1935, the son of George and Catherine (Monk) Post. He grew up in Great Neck N.Y. and spent summers in Quogue, N.Y., a place he truly felt was his home.
After graduating from Choate, he attended both Cornell University ('58) and Boston University ('64). In the interim, he served his country as a pilot in the U.S. Navy and later graduated from Harvard Business School ('66).

John had worked in management for both Hewlett Packard and Phillips until retirement, when he joined the Manchester Chapter of SCORE, supporting local businesses for over 15 years and eventually serving as Chapter Chair.

John enjoyed many outdoor activities, particularly at his home in Pocasset, MA, where he loved to golf, sail, swim, garden, and enjoy time with family for many years. He and his wife, Judie, traveled extensively throughout the United States, the Caribbean, and Europe. He was an avid golfer and won a number of championships over the years.

John is survived by his wife of 34 years, Judie (Smith) Post of Manchester; his children; Katherine, Mary (Scott), John (Kris), Maureen (John), Jill (Mike), Craig (Mary), 13 grandchildren, and one great granddaughter. He is also survived by his beloved dogs, Bryce and Villa. He was predeceased by his son William.

A celebration of his life was held privately at the convenience of the family and military honors accorded. Burial will take place at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his memory to the Humane Society of Greater Nashua, 24 Ferry Road, Nashua, NH 03064 or Quogue Historical Society, 114 Jessup Ave, Quogue, NY 11959.

I am saddened to hear of John's passing. I worked with him when he held SCORE seminars with the bank I worked at. We had some great lunch meetings and enjoyed talking about our families and our vacations. He was a wonderful man. May he Rest In Peace. My prayers are with Judie and his entire family.

I was deeply saddened to hear of John's passing. Upon joining SCORE Merrimack Valley Chapter, John was my coach. I felt blessed to have such an accomplished professional take me under his wing. I admired John immensely, not only for his leadership and coaching abilities, but as a thoughtful and down to earth human being. I believe one of his legacies will be with the current SCORE volunteers who were tutored by John. I hope I can live up to being the kind of mentor that John wanted me to be.

John hired me at HP and was always encouraging in my work. He was always pleasant to work with and we had a good group of writers that worked for John at the time. Because we originally were a small Marketing group, we shared our personal side at times and I remember how proud John was of his two daughters and his son, William. It was a sadness we all felt when Will died. Judie and family, I am so sorry for your loss, but I am glad I had the opportunity to know and work with John and you at HP. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

We are so sorry to hear of John's passing. We have many fond memories of working with John at HP Medical. We worked hard and at times played hard. John was always a great friend. We all worked hard to win every deal and to develop long term customers. It was more of a family environment. It was competitive but we looked out for each other. Fran and l will always remember and cherish the time that after we all retired that John and Judie came through Atlanta on their way home from Florida. We had a wonderful dinner and evening. Judie our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. Rest in peace friend.

A hugely accomplished and yet very unassuming guy, really a treasure. He was "One of the Good Guys", which is the highest compliment I can give!

John was a friend and colleague who offered me mentoring and perspective over our years at HP. He always had a quip or joke handy, but there is no way I could ever keep up. If I saw him in the office, I would gravitate in his direction, usually to avail myself of his wise (and wisecrack) remarks. He won't be missed by me, because he is in my thoughts often, and who could ever forget that welcoming smile.

What a great guy! He was a backbone to the SCORE organization! Very smart, kind and understanding. I will miss his insight!

I will miss John. We enjoyed planning golf outings for our Harvard reunions. I almost signed up for SCORE too. Glad he had a full life. Glad his family was by his side at the end. We all know this day is coming, but this is never easy. Griff Resor
