Saying Goodbye to Our Friend


We at PSC are deeply saddened by the passing of Rich Brueckner, leader of insideHPC. For many years, Rich drew on his industry-wide insights to communicate the impact of our field, its companies, and its contributors. Rich’s enthusiasm and optimism drove the countless interviews he conducted for insideHPC. For those of us who had the privilege of working with him, what we will remember most are his good nature and compassion, exemplified by his support for local animal shelters. HPC events won’t be the same without Rich and his iconic red hat. He will be sorely missed. 


We would like to extend our deepest and most sincere condolences to Rich’s family, friends, and close colleagues. We will aim to rejoice in the positive impact he had and the memories of good moments together.


We invite all to join Rich’s friends and colleagues from the HPC community in Rich’s Celebration of Life, a Zoom meeting that will take place on Tuesday, June 2, from 4-6 pm EST. More information available here


We can honor his life by continuing his legacy and supporting some of the causes that were close to his heart.
