RCS Pres./CEO PHILIPPE GENERALI has offered the following statement following the untimely passing of longtime engineer TERRY LONG
It is with shock and deep sadness that we learned of the passing of TERRY LONG on JULY 8th, 2014 at his home in WAPPINGER FALLS, NY. TERRY would have turned 60 next JANUARY. The causes of his death – apparently health related - are still being determined. Last MAY, TERRY celebrated 20 years of working for RCS. He was one of our most knowledgeable engineers in the field of Novell Networks and Master Control, installing well over a hundred radio station’s automation systems during his career. He then went on to a senior Support position to eventually rise to a Team Leader role. With plenty positive client’s comments and thousands of hours spent on the phone helping customers, work was one of his passion. TERRY was a night owl, always preferring the late evening shift. He had a knack for meteorology, often keeping an eye on the Doppler radar for our WHITE PLAINS area. I can still hear his kind advice on occasional summer nights where I had come to the office in the morning riding my motorcycle: "PHILIPPE, I just want to tell you that you should get out of here now, there a nasty rain patch coming our way." Yes, TERRY allowed me to stay dry many a times.
TERRY, we know you were an accomplished HAM radio guy. I hope there is a frequency somewhere, someday up there were you will be able to receive everyone’s message of how much we’ll miss you. Good bye, my friend!
