Dr. James Crivello
We are deeply saddened by the recent passing of Dr. Crivello.  Jim was not only a key member of our Technical Advisory Board, he was part of the Hampford Research family.  His knowledge of the industry was matched only by his quick wit and sense of humor.  We very much enjoyed working with Jim and he will be missed by all of us.
