skip-richardson1It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the death of one of our colleagues, Skip Richardson, on April 25, 2013. Skip was a visionary, mentor, and great contributor to our team at LEID Products. Skip will be greatly missed by LEID’s team not only for his professional contributions, but also, for his commitment, great friendship, zest for life and his giving spirit.

It was clear to all of us at LEID that Skip cherished his family. On June 22nd of last year he celebrated his 38th wedding anniversary with his wife Kathleen. He emailed our team that day to share how happy he was to have Kathleen – he even included a wedding picture as shown. In addition to being a loving husband to his wife, Kathleen, he was the proud father to two sons, Blake and Brent.

Before his years in high level executive positions, Skip proudly served our country in the United States Air Force including two years of combat in the Vietnam War.
