He will definitely be missed. . .

And he did so much more than file 183 on the cbt tape. Much can be found at the gsf-soft web site.

A half year ago the data center provider of my client requested an evaluation implementation of GSF's STEPLIB utility due to my advice. It never ended in a contract as GSF's company did not replied on minor inquiries and the provider decided to choose a competitive (but more expensive) product. I wondered about why GSF did not replied, but now I can image that his real problems had been much more fatal and serious than I could imagine.

I really appreciate some deep insights he gave me with his excellent coding examples and brilliant documentations.
I'll honor him in memory.
