Fond Farewell to Andy Cecka

4 June, 2013

We learned this week that Andy Cecka, former colleague and mentor of Chris Hornzee-Jones, passed away in California at the age of 88 years.

Andy and Chris worked together at Compositair between 1992 and '94, developing the carbon monocoque bike frame that would become famous as the Lotus Sport mountain bike.

Chris says: "I am grateful to this day for the commitment and support which Andy gave to the bike project and to me personally, even though he had officially retired from Compositair!"

Our thoughts are with Andy's family. His funeral will take place in Pismo Beach, CA on Friday 7th June at 11 a.m.
