Farewell to Steve Reynolds
By Elizabeth Gooding on September 27th, 2010
For years, Steve Reynolds donated his time and energy to raise funds for his favorite charity – LIVESTRONG. Every year, Steve and colleagues would participate in a 100 mile bike ride to raise funds for those afflicted by cancer and awareness of the challenges they face with rising medical costs. In June he found himself facing a grim diagnosis: stage 4 colon cancer. On Wednesday of last week, Steve succumbed to the disease.
Steve was a senior analyst at Lyra responsible for Lyra’s analysis of office copier/MFP and production-level devices and markets as well as the managed document services sector. He was a major contributor to Lyra’s Hard Copy Industry Advisory Service (IAS), Commercial Ink Jet Printing Advisory Service (CIJ), and Managed Document Advisory Service (MDS). With more than 20 years of market research experience in the information technology and printer industries, Steve was well known and well respected in the industry.
