 It is with great regret and sadness that MTS announces the passing of Chris Nicholson. Chris passed away suddenly in his home October 5. He was 62. Chris was truly an icon in our industry, an inventor, true innovator and successful businessman. He was founder and president of Deep Sea Systems International, now Oceaneering International. Chris received the National Oceanographic Institute Award from the Academy of Underwater Arts and Sciences in 1992. Chris’ influence extended throughout the entire international ROV community. We are all deeply saddened and he will be greatly missed.
