It is with heavy hearts that we announce that our colleague and friend, George Rauchfuss, has passed away after a long illness.  George was an accomplished patent attorney and practiced for nearly 45 years.  George served as a Patent Examiner in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. He later became Patent Counsel with Mobay Chemical Company and then Senior Patent Attorney at Richardson-Vicks, Inc. After leaving Richardson-Vicks, George joined Parmelee, Bollinger LLP as a partner before joining  Ohlandt, Greeley, Ruggiero & Perle, LLP as of counsel in 1997.

George received a BS in Chemical Engineering from his beloved Pennsylvania State University.  He subsequently received his Juris Doctorate from The Washington College of Law at American University.  He was affiliated with a number of law organizations, charitable groups and a sponsor of the US Rowing Association.

As a Penn State alum George was loyal to the Nittany Lions football team and was a regular at all of their home games. He was a sincere and devoted family man and he was a great influence on us all in the way he handled his professional career and his personal life.
