James Richard Reda, 67, passed peacefully in his wife Ann’s arms July 12, 2020 at his home in Jericho, Vermont. He was surrounded by family.

Jim was born January 18, 1953, in Rochester, NY, to Louis and Constance (Darrah) Reda. He was an amazing man: humble, creative, independent, and generous of spirit.

A 1971 graduate of Edison Technical and Industrial High School, he was class president and prime prankster. With certificates from Rochester Institute of Technology, Carnegie Mellon, and MIT, Jim was a mathematical and technological genius. As an inventor and engineer, he held seven patents and, as a successful entrepreneur, founded, built, and served as leadership for 35 years at Videk Corporation, a leading printing and vision systems provider based in Fairport, New York. In 1987, Jim and his team produced the world’s first megapixel camera in partnership with Eastman Kodak Company. As a personal project in 2017, he combined his love of music and optics to design, craft, and program a device that reads, records, and converts player piano rolls to MIDI files. Jim’s player piano scanner was exhibited across Vermont.
