Steve Wilson R.I.P.

Post by Prodigy » 24 Jul 2009, 20:51

Steve Wilson (swilson) is no longer with us..
One of the long-time TS users and beta testers had a massive heart attack this week and died.

* With my absolute deepest and most sincere apologies, it is my regret to have to inform you that on Monday, July 20th, Steve Wilson sustained, and could not recover from a massive heart-attack. That afternoon Steve passed away during surgery at Northridge Hospital. For any of you who knew my uncle, you would know how private he could be when it came to his privacy. For this reason I have but no choice to inform whomever I can through his email, of this most tragic event. A memorial will be held, and as this may sound redundant, will not be a funeral but a celebration for and of his life, work, passion and unconditional love. For this reason I would like to encourage as many people as possible who attend, not to wear all black, but something more comfortable and somewhat casual, for this is more how he would have wanted it. The memorial will be held Saturday, August 1st at 11:00 A.M. at Gates Kingsley & Gates Praisewater Mortuary, 6909 Canoga Ave, Chatsworth, CA, 91303. For any questions, concerns or comments, please contact his sister Melanie Streitfeld at Streitfeld@cox.net or 310-541-6210 or his wife Lily at 818-718-2665.

Link to a pictures of him, back at Siggraph 99, incl. one where he and Roman were having a discussion. They are old foto scans, so not as clear as the digital stuff.

It's sad. Even if we do not know people personally in the real life, some names seems familiar for years.

Judging by the wonderful artwork on his site, I think he was a man I would have been very glad to meet.

I'd like to add my condolences to his family and friends.

Kurt.
