Very sad news, I just met Richard last year at AU. He will have to help guide us along in the next life. Very emotional times for everyone. RIP "Sinc"

I never had a privilege meeting Richard in person but can tell that I have learned a lot from his posts here on Forums, as well as on http://www.ejsurveying.com/ website. Sync’s directness, knowledge and expertise will be missed here at Autodesk and in the entire Civil community and I know that his absence will be very noticeable here on Forums.

 

RIP “Sync” you will be greatly missed!

Rest in peace Sinc. I'm happy to have met you. Your persona was as infectious and your contribution will be missed. Your free from gravity Richard... Sail free.

Thank you

It's always hard when we lose community members. I've gone through this more times than I care to recall, and it never gets any easier.

 

Our Autodesk Support family paid close attention to Sinc, and referred users to some of his articles regularly. Sinc knew surveying and Civil 3D like no one else, and the industry will mourn our loss. I feel as if we learned more from Sinc than he ever learned from us. I met him in Las Vegas a few years back and really had a great time talking to him and finally putting a face and voice to the online persona.

 

Jeff - thank you for keeping me updated via email since I don't get the opportunity to visit this forum that much anymore. I've kept our team informed and we are all reeling from the news this morning. I'm glad that I got to talk with you in Las Vegas and sign the card - I hope he got some happiness from reading the well wishes from his fans.

 

Peace be with us all.

A great person and mentor has gone, but his words and deeds live on here in our community; for that I am thankful.  And  that I was able to meet him last year.

 

To Richard's family - you know already about him as a person, but here you will find a testimony to the lives he touched and the knowledge he shared.  Peace be with you through this difficult transition.

Saddened to hear of Sinc's passing.

 

Although I did not know him personally I learnt a great deal from the knowledge he shared.

 

My condolences to his family and friends.
