Godspeed to HP's Tim Sheehan

It was a harsh weekend in this community.

I mentioned the passing of Cythia Upson, whose funeral was yesterday in Richmond, Va. Well, Joanne Connelly of ConnellyWorks let me know that Tim Sheehan, who most recently was VP and general manager of HP's Federal business, passed away on Friday.

Tim most recently was VP and General Manager of HP's Federal business unit where I had the pleasure of working with him. Prior to joining HP, Tim was an executive at CSC where he was instrumental in that company's Groundbreaker program. This has, indeed, been a sad weekend.

Here is the notice from the WP:

He graduated from the University of Maryland with a B.S in Business Management/ Computer Science. After his military service, Tim held several positions with Computer Sciences Corporation.

Most recently, he was named Vice President and General Manager of Hewlett Packard Company's Federal Technology Solutions Group. Tim was active in many professional organizations including the International Association of Chiefs of Police and Intelligence & National Security Alliance. An avid sportsman, he especially loved to play golf and won many prizes for his competitive talents and athletic abilities.
