Maxxsonics Vice President Ted Henricks passed away suddenly on Jan. 23 in his McHenry, Illinois home, according to an announcement from the company.
Henricks was one of the founding members of Maxxsonics in 2001. While he held several positions throughout the organization, he never drifted far from his passion of sales and marketing where he served as the company’s vice president. He was born in 1958.
Alden Stiefel, president and CEO of Maxxsonics, issued the following statement about the news:
“Ted was an incredibly talented co-worker who added so much value to our business, it truly cannot be measured. Maxxsonics is not just a company, it’s a family. It is my family. Many of you know Ted was also one of my closest friends; we worked together for nearly 25 years.
“Ted was the one of us at Maxxsonics who was most in love with the music and the passion that drives our industry. NEVER was his office quiet. Pink Floyd will live on at Maxxsonics forever in our memories of Ted.
“He leaves behind an influential legacy at Maxxsonics along with many great memories for all of us to cherish for the rest of our lives. It is with a very heavy heart that we hear the needle-¦ lift from the vinyl on this incredible man’s life.”
Maxxsoncis has created a tribute page to share memories and post comments about Henricks. The Henricks family is planning funeral services in the next few days. Details will be posted on the tribute page.
