Obituary of John F. Learman
John F. “Jack” Learman
Jack was born May 30, 1925, to Frank and Edna Learman in Bay City, MI. He attended Kalamazoo College as a varsity tennis player before serving in the US Army in Europe during World War II, after which he graduated from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, with a degree in industrial mechanical engineering. In 1951, he obtained a Juris Doctor degree from George Washington University Law School where he met and married his loving wife, fellow law student Pat Lattimer. He received the Order of the Coif and practiced for over 50 years as an intellectual property lawyer with a world-wide clientele with the firms of Learman & Learman, Learman & McCulloch, and Reising, Ethington, Barnes, Kissele, Learman & McCulloch. His practice involved the prosecution of patent and trademark matters in the US Patent Office, licensing in the US and abroad, and litigation in US federal courts. He was licensed to practice in Michigan and before the bars of the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and the US Supreme Court.
During his career, he served as a director of many civic and business organizations, including the Saginaw Chapter of the American Red Cross, the American Red Cross Midwest Advisory Board of Governors, Family Federal Savings Bank, and RWC Corporation as well as the Saginaw Country Club and the Saginaw Club.
Jack was a long-time winter resident of the John’s Island Club in Vero Beach, FL, and summer resident on Lake Huron’s Sanctuary Bay, north of Harrisville, where he enjoyed “down time” with four generations of extended family.
He is survived by his children, Susan Learman (Mark Krysinski), Jeffrey Learman (Lori Coates), Scott Learman (Cheryl Daniels); his grandchildren Alex Coates (Debra Linn), Christina Krysinski (Nick Dye), Charles Krysinski (Lilly Krysinski), Victoria Learman and Steven Learman; brother Richard (Jean) Learman; nieces and nephews Rick Learman, Randy Learman, Mike Learman, Cathy Bourdganis, Bob Learman, Craig Learman and David Learman.
He was preceded in death by his brother Robert Learman, and in 2022 by his wife of 71 years, Patricia Lattimer Learman.
In keeping with John’s wishes, cremation has taken place. The Learman family will hold a private memorial service at a later date.
