Alden Stiefel, president and CEO of Maxxsonics, released a statement: “Ted was an incredibly talented co-worker who added so much value to our business, it truly cannot be measured. Maxxsonics is not just a company, it’s a family. It is my family. Many of you know Ted was also one of my closest friends; we worked together for nearly 25 years.
“Ted was the one of us at Maxxsonics who was most in love with the music and the passion that drives our industry. Never was his office quiet. Pink Floyd will live on at Maxxsonics forever in our memories of Ted.
“He leaves behind an influential legacy at Maxxsonics along with many great memories for all of us to cherish for the rest of our lives. It is with a very heavy heart that we hear the needle… lift from the vinyl on this incredible man’s life.”
