I got a message this morning from the wife of Neale Davidson, (aka Jaynz, Vance and Vanguard online) that last night he suffered a massive stroke. He is on total life support and is not expected to recover.

He could be a hothead online but was quite dedicated to his hobby. He massively influenced Trek tech fandom with his cut and paste kits for people to come up with their own designs. And his recreated tech manuals and expansions on those books helped keep that material alive. I spent time with him in Colorado Springs several years ago and found him to be intense but quite interesting, and in fact enjoyable to be with. He recently reached out to me to reconnect on Facebook.

Please keep him and his family in your thoughts.

I already replied in email, but this is rough news.

Neale is definitely an individual.

For those that were not aware, his font work is terrific. http://www.pixelsagas.com/

My hopes are with his family.
