Sad News: Drew and Brent Speedie

Ted, Tamar, Drew, Whil, Art, BrentVery sad news: Drew Speedie (third from left) and his son, Brent Speedie (right) passed away while on vacation in Yellowstone.

Drew was a very talented man. He worked as the technical editor of “Hacker’s Guide to Visual FoxPro 3” and he helped Tamar and I make the book far better. Drew went on to develop the MaxFrame Professional framework. I used MaxFrame on a number of applications quite successfully. Drew was a contributing editor at FoxPro Advisor magazine where he wrote a number of insightful articles. Drew spoke at many FoxPro conferences around the world, always entertaining, always informative. He often attended the conferences in the company of son Brent and wife Irene.

He will be missed. My condolences to his family.
