I don't have all the details, but it appears there was an accident and Raynes died peacefully in his sleep on Sunday.

Holy hell! Did you catch this on a faciespace post or were you following his haskell endeavors? That guy sure ran far with functional programming. A sad passing.

Fuck. :`(
Always liked that kid. Smart. Friendly. Slightly confrontational. We had him on the weekly DIC.

He also lost a ton of weight since that vid. He looked good too. Fun fact, when I first saw him posting on DIC I, for some reason, pictured him as a black man with dreds. Dunno where that came from. I told him that and he laughed his ass off.

That's a shame. I follow a lot of Clojure people on twitter; a lot of people are posting about it.

My sentiments as well. Raynes was the voice of FP on DIC well before FP was more widely accepted. He really contributed a ton to the community and was a great person. I'm very sorry to hear of his passing. :(

Sorry to hear that. I did not know the man, but judging from reading this thread, I sure would loved to know about him. I know that you guys are not big on beliefs but, May the Lord Almighty, grant his soul to be at peace and allow him safe passage to heaven.

Amen.
