John Dee Education
He spent his formative years in the suburbs of Chicago, specifically Park Ridge, until the time arrived for him to embark on his college journey. His initial foray into higher education led him to the University of Wyoming in Laramie. It was during this period that he decided on his major, a program the university did not offer. Consequently, he returned closer to home and enrolled at Purdue University, where he ultimately earned a bachelor’s degree in Meteorology.
Following his college years, he dedicated a year of his professional life to Washington D.C., working with the National Weather Service. However, for the past 18 years, he has thrived as an independent meteorologist, providing tailored weather forecasts through his private practice.
John Dee Career
Between January 1991 and January 1999, he operated his offices amid the steel, glass, and concrete landscape of Chicago. In January 1999, the flexibility to choose his workplace led him to make a pivotal decision, relocating his operations to the Keweenaw Peninsula in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Renowned for its substantial snowfall, averaging 240 inches annually and reaching as high as 390 inches in 1978-79, it became his new professional haven.
Continuing his meteorological pursuits, he found the idyllic setting of the Keweenaw Peninsula conducive to working from the comfort of his home. In November 2002, he encountered Nora, and by June 2003, she had relocated to the Keweenaw to be with him. The culmination of their journey occurred on October 9th, 2004, when Nora and John exchanged vows and became husband and wife.
John Dee’s obituary will be released by the family
