Re: RIP Richard Boyd (PicoUSA)

Hello Matt,

Thanks for sharing this sad news about a great guy, as other have already expressed, he will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family through this very difficult time.

Jorge Menchu had contacted me earlier this week to inform me about Richard and subsequently reminded me that I may have some video of Richard we shot at Vision some time in the past. I remember the time that we shot this as there was a lot of horse-play, laughing and carrying on prior to getting these guys to put on a straight face and talk on the camera. My regret is that I didn't have the camera rolling the entire time. Richard definitely liked to have fun which those around him quickly became familiar with.

I've been fortunate to have worked with Richard found him to be an overall great guy who was very knowledgeable. This past year at Vision our booth's were right across from each other so we got to spend some time together. He and I began chatting about the NVH and he blew me away with the knowledge he had on the subject.

I dug up the footage Jorge reminded me of and uploaded it to You-tube for you and others to see.


Thank you Richard for the impact you've had on all of us!
