George Robbins died on this day, in 2002. The ambulance passed me on the way to work, and pulled into our parking lot right in front of me. George had died sometime during the night, and had been found by one of our NOC staff.

His largely-estranged family had a small memorial for him at a funeral home, and a few days later, we held a larger memorial for friends, coworkers, and everyone. It was done Quaker style - silence, and then whoever wanted to talk, talked. It was amazing.

We had a memorial web site for George, but across a series of corporate mergers, it's been disappeared. I've culled it from and it's now up on my memorial page:
