Memphis — John Chapman, director of technical services at Memphis, Tenn.-based Terminix, passed away on June 21. He was 60. 
 
A graduate of Michigan State University, Chapman possessed a lifelong passion for nature and science. He began his career with Terminix in 1971 as a service professional at the company’s franchise in Corpus Christi, Texas. John went on to lead a 38-year career with the organization, serving in various technical and leadership roles across the country.
 
He moved into a management role in 1974 when he accepted an assistant managerial position at the company’s Fort Worth franchise, but his heart never strayed far from the technical specialization and service aspects of the profession where his background was rooted. During his time at Terminix, he became one of the company’s foremost experts in termite behavior and treatment, and he was widely known as one of the pest control industry’s most trusted minds.
