Is there a way this community could send something to his family or something?
His work was such an amazing contribution.
There were some projects I just wouldn't have completed without his help.
He should have publish a book, like a physical paper copy of his stuff just to
have on the shelf.

When did he pass? It had to have been after 2015.
