June 6, 2012
June 06, 2012 was a very sad day for all at RainWise. We lost our Founder, our friend, John Baer. The majority of the people presently working at RainWise spent many years under John's leadership and tutelage. We owe our present success, reputation and robust product offerings to John's engineering abilities and steadfast ethics. If the product didn't live up to his expectations, it sure as heck wasn't going out the door. RainWise customer service also benefits from John's attitude of "treat the customer the way you would want to be treated". John sold the company to the employees in 2004 yet remained involved as a consultant and a go-to guy when we needed him. He did not disappoint. His passing was a shock to all of us. He will be sorely missed but remembered as an inspiration, a father figure and a respected gentleman to us all. God speed John.
