From his obituary:
A scientist to the end, Dr. Houbolt arranged with his family to donate his brain to Massachusetts General Hospital for research into Parkinson's Disease.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions in John's memory be made to Joliet Junior College Foundation, Resource Development, 1215 Houbolt Road, Joliet, IL 60431. A private family service is planned at a later date.
