He attended Hobart and William Smith College as one of the first recipients of a scholarship from the Geneva Scholarship Associates, and graduated in 1974.

His company is a leader in the field, partnering with the world's foremost securities industry firms, to "bridge the gap" between business and technology.

He was the dearly loved brother of Patricia Wilson, Geneva, NY, Eugene (Linda), Penn Yan, NY, Fredrick Law III (Ann Aiko), Honolulu, Hawaii, and the late Richard Olmstead of Boston, MA; the adored son-in-law of Lynda and the late John Null; and a cherished brother-in-law, uncle, great-uncle, cousin and friend. He will be fondly remembered by his family, friends, classmates, colleagues and the business community he served.
