John Scire, senior vice president at Robertet Flavors, died on Nov. 27, 2013 after a battle with cancer. He was 64 years old.
Born in Brooklyn, NY, Scire trained as a chemist and graduated from the Polytechnic Institute of New York University. He began his professional career at Fritzche Dodge & Olcott in New York City, where he worked for many years.
Scire joined the Robertet organization after the French-based company acquired U.S.-based Jay Flavors in 1986. Alongside a few key colleagues, the company said he became one of the key architects who restructured and strengthened the Robertet Flavors organization in the United States over the past 27 years.
