For anyone who didn't know, or doesn't recall, John is the inspiration for the movie A Beautiful Mind. He was a mathematical genius, and a schizophrenic. Both John and his wife were killed. He was 86 and she was 82.

Very sad.

Oddly, I just thought of Young Frankenstein as I was typing. Do you think the young doctor would have classified him as brilliant or AB Normal? How do doctors decide that when faced with such a duo conundrum? Hmm..

Well, much condolences to the family. She stuck by him despite his troubles and they shared much in that lifetime, I'd venture.

Actually, they had a pretty unusual relationship. They got married in the late 50s, then divorced in the early 60s, BUT, then they lived together for years. They remarried in 2001 until their deaths. It seems they just couldn't stay away from each other.
