Sad story.

Would anyone agree? Fred Fish was for the Amiga what John Peel was for music. Both have in common that "profit" was not amongst their most-used words. And both of them legends, too.

I didn't realise he lived in NZ until after the Amiga heyday. Was he born and bred in NZ?

Edit: Read another news item that said he died at his home in Idaho, so I guess he's American as I originally thought.

I just found this post from what appears to be Fred's son apparently breaking the news on the binutils mailing list.

Bugger........only 54 years old when he died Died far too young just like other Amiga pioneers in Jay Miner, Bill Williams and Richard Joseph.
