The Rochester Optics Community has lost a beloved member of our family. Rick Nasca died suddenly on Tuesday night, December 2nd. He was only 57.
Rick spent his entire career at Tropel, and was optical manufacturing / finishing technology leader. He was passionate about optics education and devoted a great deal of time to MCC’s program on behalf of Corning, recognizing and rewarding students in the industry, and encouraging young people to pursue careers in optics. He was past president of APOMA (American Precision Optics Manufacturers Association).
Rick leaves behind a wife and two daughters that he adored, a family and friends that will miss him dearly, as well as all of us in the optics community.
Miss you, buddy.
