Please forgive this horridly off-topic posting. But many of you knew
my father, Fred Fish, as a contributor to gcc, gdb, binutils, and
probably many other things over the years.
It is with great sadness that I inform you that Fred passed away April
20th. By all accounts he died quietly in his sleep. He was only 54
For as long as I can remember, my dad was a user, supporter, and
developer of free software, whether with his famous "FishDisk"
collection for the Amiga or his more recent activities with gdb, et
al. I am grateful that he was able to earn a living doing something
he enjoyed so much, as not everyone is so blessed.
I am also grateful that he was able to live out his dream of cruising.
For those of you curious about what Fred was up to outside of "work"
for the last couple of years, take a look at: http://www.diveadx.com/
I miss you Dad.
