John F. Dove - Laid to Rest

Rome’s John F. Dove remembered as energetic, witty, kind
John F. Dove was remembered at his funeral Monday as a man of intelligence, integrity, and humor. In the many eulogies offered at the service, held in Rome’s First Presbyterian Church, the pioneering African American engineer’s boundless energy was referred to with awe and affection. “He found the time to be everywhere and do everything,” Herbert Thorpe, a life-long colleague, and friend said.
