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.
