A few weeks ago, there was an announcement on the http://twitter.com/physicsforums" [Broken]: I’ve been meaning to send https://www.physicsforums.com/member.php?u=187122"), but he’s been inactive. I figured he was likely on vacation. Well it’s been a few weeks now, longer than the usual vacation. So I did some sleuthing, using information he had on his user page. I found http://www.nj.com/independentpress/index.ssf/2009/10/michael_bell_formerly_of_new_p.html" [Broken]. I’m afraid he’s passed away. The ham radio call numbers on his user page match the ones in the obit, as do the name, age, profession, and hometown. I'm very sad by this. Negitron hadn't been here long but he was a great contributor. And he was so much fun in chat, too, very witty! Bye, negitron, I'll miss you :sad:.
