XAMOS author Stephen Harvey-Brooks (Mequa) has passed away
« on: July 19, 2015, 02:14:13 PM »
I'm sad to inform everyone that Stephen Harvey-Brooks, aka Mequa, passed away on July 3rd due to complications during an operation to change a pacemaker. He was a member of most Amiga related websites and known in this community for the cross-platform AMOS BASIC interpreter, XAMOS. Outside of this community, he was heavily involved in debate on Epicurean philosophy. He would have been 33 on the 18th of this month.

Geez..this is sad news indeed.  And so young to even have a pacemaker...At this point I would think such a thing is "basic and routine" for the lack of a better phrase.  But I do
understand anything can happen during any type of surgery.  All in all very sad :(.
