Hugh Jacobs (one of our members) sadly passed away yesterday [Feb 15]. I thought that some of you who met him at the launch parties, etc would have liked to known.

There's a "In loving memory of Hugh Jacobs" page on Facebook:

Hugh was instrumental in getting our za.ubuntuforums.org forum up and running, and sent out some free Ubuntu case badges a while ago that he had purchased.

He was also involved in translations. See: https://translations.launchpad.net/~circuskiller

And then he was also seen on IRC as Circus-Killer. As far as I can see he was last seen in the #ubuntu-za channel on the 30th of January.
