A couple of hours ago Steve's daughters sent out a note to his address 
book, which many of you on this list will also have seen. Apparently Steve 
suffered a heart attack and was gone very quickly. 

Although Steve had various health issues, that was never his focus and 
never the impression he gave in person, and I'm sure many people who 
didn't know him personally would be surprised to hear that. He always met 
every problem so directly, with such determination (and without 
complaint), that it seemed it was always the problem that blinked, never 
Steve. As many of us had been in communication with him via e-mail up 
through Wednesday afternoon, it's really hard to adjust to this sad 

For those interested, his obituary may be found here:


and there is a form by which condolences may be left. I suspect that even 
his family may not realize just how big his Internet world was, so I hope 
his friends everywhere will let them know how widely he'll be missed.

As others have already mentioned, his family would appreciate donations to 
the Missouri Botanical Garden in lieu of flowers.
