Thank you dmr Sir for your numerous contributions. You will always be remembered. I wish I had gotten the chance to meet you in person.

A news link is here. His homepage at Bell labs.

A rather fitting comment from a reddit thread:

 
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void){
printf("goodbye world :( \n");
return(70);
}

NOTE: Please do not comment with references to Steve Jobs and the difference in the amount of coverage the two deaths received. I will not approve/delete any such comments. Thanks.
