Richard W. “Rick” Kuba, 84, of Easton, Md., passed away March 13, 2017. From 1986 to 1998, he worked at AMT as the international marketing director and was responsible for implementing AMT’s first office abroad in Zurich, Switzerland, to service emerging central and eastern European countries. He began his career as an apprentice tool, die and gage maker, then served four years in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War. Prior to joining AMT, Mr. Kuba had a successful career in the machine tool industry at the Moore Special Tool Company, in Bridgeport, Conn., where he worked as a
machinist, was promoted to service manager and ultimately became global sales manager. 

“Rick was a stickler for detail and a great organizer,” shared Malcolm Mason, former AMT Global Services Director. “For my first AMT Trade Mission to Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic, he split the group and put us on two separate
flights, as a precaution. We all arrived at multiple destinations, without a hitch. Rick’s efforts in Central and Eastern Europe led the way to this lucrative market for many AMT members who prospered as a result.” 

A celebration of his life will be held at St. Michaels Mission Church on May 25 at 11 a.m., St. Michaels, Md. The inurnment service will be held at Arlington National Cemetery on May 31, 2017, at 10 a.m.
