    Our industry has lost a great leader.
    I have known Charlie from the time he headed up the print operation at Harvard. He helped me tremendously in the launch of DocuTech. Charlie was a printer and a strategist, possessing great knowledge of our industry. He was smart, he had a great sense of humor and was a humble person. I am saddened by his passing. He was a wonderful human being. I am proud he was a friend.
