I'm sorry to announce that Jim Reichert Sr. has passed. Does anyone remember him? I do. I remember the day I picked up one of my Questars from him in New Hope. He had personally inspected the telescope to be sure it was perfect. It was funny when he commented on his humble desk and said, this is the best I get here :-) After he retired and every time I spoke with his son, Jim Jr., I would ask how his father was doing. The answer was always, very well. I believe he was in his early 90's. We have also lost Paul Schenkle a while back. He was the one I bought my very first Questar from back around 1974. I still have one his personal, handwritten letters he wrote to me about colored glass filters. I believe he joined Questar back in the 60's. I know it's part of life, but it's so very sad to see people leave this world.
With sympathy for Jim Jr., his family, and all that new Jim Sr.,
