Mr. John S. Horvath

June 20, 1928 — September 27, 2022

John S. Horvath died in his home on September 27, 2022. He was 94 years old. John was born in New Brunswick NJ and was a graduate of New Brunswick High School. He served in the U.S. Marine Corps (1948-1952), rising to the rank of Staff Sargent. He was a combat veteran of the Korean War.

John and his young family moved to Somerset NJ in 1960, where he lived for 53 years. He worked as a chemical laboratory technician for Air Reduction (Airco) and then as a salesman for its chemicals and plastics division, which was acquired by Air Products in the 1970s. He retired in 1994. His charm, outgoing and friendly manner, and wit made him a great success in life as well as in his work.

John was an avid amateur mycologist and was a member of the NJ Mycological Association for many decades, serving as president 2000-2001. In later years John became an enthusiastic hiker with the University Outing Club.

John was pre-deceased by his wife of 54 years, Theresa (Gentile) Horvath and by his brother Charles.
