HVC Farewells a Friend

It's with sadness that HVC has been informed of the passing of one of our long time IT volunteers and friend, Chris Crane.

At just 25, Chris was diagnosed with a rare form of Cancer earlier this year. He deteriorated quickly, and passed away on Wednesday, 8/9/2010.

Chris brought a wealth of IT knowledge with him and, during his 5 years with us, was instrumental in designing, implementing and refining several of our IT systems and procedures. He was of great assistance to me in my role as IT Manager, and we became good friends, both in the workplace and outside of work.

In that time I also saw many changes in Chris and saw him grow, as a person, into someone that was highly respected by his peers and other volunteers that he worked with.

HVC would like to extend their condolences to Chris's parents and family and thank them for the pleasure of having the opportunity to know and work with Chris over the last 5 years.
