My deepest condolences to the Elgin family. I worked many times with Rich on and off through the 90's and early 2000's when I traveled to customers in the Chicago area. Rich was a great guy and I enjoyed working with him at the accounts. May his spirit reside in the memories we keep.

I worked with Rich for many years at IBM. He was an excellent technician. We collaborated on many technical problems on various IBM products. It was always a pleasure and he will be missed by many. Al Theys AS/400 Suppot
