HP&M Mourns the Loss of a Good Friend and ColleagueFebruary 2, 2015
Attached here is the obituary of Frank Hurley, as issued by his company RRD International. Frank was a Co-Founder of RRD as well as its Chairman and Chief Scientific Officer. The obituary’s rich detail correctly describes his professional reputation as the premier innovator in his field, whose expertise made possible the development of products that advanced the cause of medicine. Moreover, the obituary notes the personal qualities that made him so well loved and, now, so greatly missed by so many.
We at Hyman, Phelps & McNamara, P.C., join with Frank’s family, his colleagues at RRD, and his countless friends in mourning his passing. Some of us have known and worked with Frank since he founded his first company, BRI International, Inc., in 1971. On the professional level, Frank was simply the best at what he did, providing expert advice that was always clear, insightful, and useful. As a husband and a father, he was the best. On the personal level, Frank was a great companion in good times and bad – thoughtful, good-humored, and generous. We will miss him greatly.
