On Sunday morning of February 11, 2018, the world lost an amazing man, James Heidrich. His passing was very sudden, and all are left in shock and disbelief. He is survived by his wife Debbie and daughter, Shay. James has done so many things in his lifetime, but his passion was music, people, and his spirituality. As the founder of Bad Cat Amplifier Co. and Blackwing Amplifiers, he was uncomprimising and dedicated to the product he delivered. His love, integrity, and humble character is what drew so many to him, and enabled long lasting relationships to form. He would help anyone if he could, always had a story to tell, and a sense of humor to go with it. The weight of this loss is felt so deeply, by family, many friends, and the music industry; and it is easy to understand why. James will never be forgotten, as he has left an impression wherever he went and in every heart he touched. In love and support, in lieu of flowers, please donate to the family to help fund the memorial services and other related expenses due to his passing. There are no words to express the amount of gratitude the family has for all of the outpouring of love and kindness, during this devastating time. Thank you so very much.
