Dick (Richard) Chasman

Rush NY:  Age 69, died on July 8, 2015 after happy and productive life, surrounded by friends and family, to the strains of cello music by his wife, Kathy Lewis. He lived life doing the things he loved–backpacking, astronomy, bee keeping, maple syruping and more.
After an illustrious research career at Kodak he founded InSite Inc, moving mountains with software. He will be missed by many as a husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, colleague, mentor and friend.
