Death of a contributor

Jon Birrell, a contributor to a number of BSD projects (primarily FreeBSD), has died.  His friend and coworker Craig Rodrigues has posted a notice about his death, along with some memories.  It’s always awful when someone dies, but it always strikes me about how when an open source contributor dies, it’s noticed, quietly, worldwide.
