John H. Crouch Memorial Fund


Non-profit organizations like INFINITY committed to the mission of inspiring generations cannot do so without the selfless dedication of volunteers like John H. Crouch. His 5 years of volunteer service to INFINITY spans from the center's opening in April 2012 through the recent move of the Apollo 19 Saturn V S-1C booster. While we mourn his passing, we are deeply honored to celebrate a life of service and his unique ability to leave a lasting impression on the minds and in the hearts of those with whom he shared his passion for the dream and reality of spaceflight and the stories of the people and the machines that made it possible. 

On any given Thursday at INFINITY, John could be found joyfully interacting with guests, sharing his extensive knowledge of rocketry and aerospace engineering, an interest of his that stems from his time in junior high, and that later became his life's work. He began work for Boeing in June 1962 and after some time was assigned to manage range-saftey analyses for the Apollo 8 mission, the first manned Saturn V mission. His work continued through the Apollo program when he then pursued a career in law.

His love for INFINITY ran deep and we are profoundly grateful for his service to this organization. He will be deeply missed.
