He did some great work for the Amiga community since early 1986 to 1994, no small feat to say the least!
RIP :/

I tried contacting him via the technical contact email of one of his many domains last year, but I never received an answer..

I just wanted to thank him for all the magic back when I was a kid.. Fish disks were definitely a big part of it all!

Rest in peace and thanks for all the Fish disks.

Damn! Another memorable name who's moved on to the after life.

I didn't really use the Fish disk series way back when but I do have the full set for posterity.

I was in contact with him in recent months finalising sending me a dvd of the complete (or as complete as can be) backup of the geekgadgets collection...

I guess this is why things weren't completed...

very sad news

he never got to move onto new areas... :/
