It has been quite a while since my last post, and I really wish that this one was full of boring SolidWorks tips and tricks.
This morning I found out that Wayne Tiffany had passed away during the weekend after a fight with cancer. Those of you who are active in the SolidWorks community should already know Wayne, as he made it a point to meet as many people as possible every year at SolidWorks World. Wayne would often hang out in the registration area with Richard Doyle and help welcome attendees to the event (which is why he was usually one of the first people that I would see upon arrival.) Wayne not only loved SolidWorks, but he loved to share ideas, tips, and tricks. His enthusiasm for the SolidWorks Community was completely unparalleled. Wayne played a HUGE role in helping me get the SolidWorks User Group of Nebraska (SwugOne) up and running. It was not unusual for him to travel hundreds of miles to give a presentation for one of the User Groups in his region. His sessions at SolidWorks World were almost always “standing room only” – he was also well known for giving a quick, impromptu presentation in the hallway if you weren’t able to make it to the scheduled session.
Farewell old friend, you will truly be missed.
