A love of books and knowledge led John McWilliams M.S. ’89 to curate a personal library of over 4,000 titles. John earned his master’s from Santa Clara University and spent the majority of his director-level engineering career working top secret Department of Defense contracts in Silicon Valley, in service to his country. In retirement, he found writing to be one of his truest passions. John died on June 8, 2021. He is survived by his loving wife of 52 years and extended family.
