    I have just been informed this evening that an
    old friend of mine, Michael Rochman, passed away
    on February 11th.

    Though I am certain many of you have no idea
    who Micheal Rochman is, he was the driving force
    behind the entire infrastructure of Home Theater
    Forum
    .

    I originally met Mr. Rochman back in the early
    90s when HTF was simply a small chat forum on the
    PRODIGY network. Michael was an initial partner
    of mine who helped put together the earliest
    foundations of what would one day be known as HOME
    THEATER FORUM.

    A little history of Mike Rochman's contributions
    to this forum can be found here....

    As I stated, other than the few veterans left in
    this forum from the days of dial-up services, there
    are probably few that remember Mike Rochman. It is
    important that he be remembered for the foundations
    he laid that made Home Theater Forum what
    it is today.

    I will greatly miss Mike Rochman.

    Condolences Ron. All I can say is that I'm proud to be a member of this not-so-little community. Especially after learning all the history behind it!

    Rest in peace Mike.

    I'm really sorry to hear about this loss.[​IMG] Although I never met him or had even heard of him before two minutes ago, he has had an impact on my life as a founding father of the HTF.
