Rudy Prokupets dead at 63
Sorry to be late on the uptake here, but I just heard that Rudy Prokupets, founder of Lenel, died of a heart attack, June 16. I never met Rudy personally, but I've been told that he was a character and a generous man, and Lenel was obviously a major innovator in the security industry. I'm also impressed by this quote from the Times: "Mr. Prokupets, a lifelong lover of opera, was recognized for his generosity with a plaque at the Metropolitan Opera of New York, of which his wife is a current board member." I love it when technology guys can appreciate the arts as well. That shows a well-rounded intellect.
