Richard Garneau was a friend of Blomeley Communications, and we are greatful for the positive impact he had on us. We are saddened by his passing on January 20th.
Our history with Richard goes back almost 30 years when we worked together on numerous Quebec based sporting events, Montreal Canadiens broadcasts, and most recently on NHL productions projects. Richard was ‘the voice’ on 4 of the 5 disks of the Montreal Canadiens 100th Anniversary DVD Box Set. The show was produced by Blomeley Communications for the NHL and has been the NHLs best selling DVD to date.
” ‘100 ans des Canadiens de Montréal’ was produced in French first. Producing a quality product that would meet the demands and appeal to the francophone fan was our priority. It was Richard Garneau’s trademark voice and delivery, and his presence on over 7 hours of HD historical content that changed a historical highlight pack into a ‘genuine’ chronical of Habs history.” said Ed Blomeley Executive Producer. It will be a long time before we see another great man and broadcaster as Richard.
