Gear Nut
 

It is with a very heavy heart that I must inform the Gearslutz community that fellow member Bogic Petrovic aka Boggy suddenly passed away from a heart attack.
All my condolences and thoughts goes to family and friends, I was lucky to call myself one of his and to be honest, I cannot describe how sad I am.
I liked him a lot and had a lot of respect for him as a person and genius Acoustician.
May he now rest in peace and I hope he is now with his beloved wife Zorica.

You are now one star in the sky my friend.

Farewell, Boggy

Boggy truly liked this forum.
He was constantly telling me to participate and that GS acoustics forum was "the best place, with great professionals and high level topics".

A tremendous loss not only for GS but for the entire field of acoustics and electroacoustics... no question!
I will always remember him as a motivator and a very generous man to whom there was "no secrets".

It's very saddening to hear that this very talented and kind man has passed away. He has been inspirational to me in both his work and attitude.

So sad to hear this, and I send my sincere condolences to his loved ones. It just makes you realize how precious life is, and how short our time on this planet is.

RIP Boggy !

Bad news. I hope your heirs keep and spread their work. Your room concept is revolutionary, hopefully someone will continue on their way. RIP

"It is with a sad heart and a real tear in my eye that I note the sudden passing of Boggy. A creator at the level of a Putnam, or Les Paul, or George Neumann IMO, his unique work will become part of normality in years to come. He shared his professorial knowledge gently and generously. I am so sad today.

He also asked me to post this photo of Boggy that he sent me:

Only seeing this now. Very sad indeed. I had a few nice chats years ago with Boggy and liked his work. He was clever and above all came across as a very kind human being.

I sincerely hope the company can keep going and keep the development of his ideas.

RIP and condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.

Goodbye to a Friend

I got to know Boggy here on Gearslutz some years ago and soon we had long chats on Skype talking acoustics. In 2015 I finally traveled to Belgrade to meet him in person. He gave me a two days ride around Serbia to visit a bunch of studios he had built and was proud of for sure. We had a good time spinning ideas and I enjoyed great Serbian hospitality. In 2017 we met again in Slovenia while he finished work on another MRAD2 studio. I have the greatest respect for his work on room acoustics as well as his approach as a human being ... feeling very sad that he passed away ... may I share a personal photo of him:

Goodbye Boggy

Like many, I followed Bogic Petrovic through these pages, for years.

Technically brilliant and having deep insight, genuinely kind and tireless in his commitment to helping others, he never disdained of those who knew less than he. Even when accosted occasionally by a few, he responded with evenness and good will. He always lifted us up.

The highest honour we could pay him would be not only to model the genius of his acoustic designs, but to emulate his heartfelt humanness as best we can.

You did not know me Boggy, but I knew you. And I will miss you, sorrowfully, for quite some time.

Very, very sad news, which makes me post for the first time here. Just two weeks ago I had a very nice chat with Boggy about the room I am building now. Then I sent him for analysis all the plans and descriptions and was waiting for his feedback, which very unfortunately will never come... I hope you are on a better place now, Boggy.
My condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.

Only just found out today on FB. RIP Boggy. An inspiration and guide on GS and beyond for helping me build my own little studio.

Makes me realise that I should post more and say thanks when I've found something useful even if I've not asked any questions. So much info is available on here and other platforms that it's easy to overlook the vast time and effort people put into helping others on their own quest.

Northward Acoustics and Boggy were massive inspirations (amongst many others) to me building my room so thank you to everyone who shares their knowledge for everyone's benefit.
