I just got the sad news that John Vlissides, one of the four authors of Design Patterns, passed away early Thursday morning.

Edited to add on Monday, 28 November: John died at home, surrounded by his family. He had a brain tumor. He served as general chair of OOPSLA 2004 while undergoing chemotherapy. I know that I'm not alone in saying that he will be sorely missed.

  • No, no, no.
    It must be a mistake!
    John! Why the rush? Come back!
    Uh, CU next life!
