Farewell, Robert Marquardt

with 12 comments

I just learned that Robert Marquardt passed away on December 29th, 2007. Many people in the Delphi community will recognize his name. He was a generous and long-time contributor to the Delphi community, and a member of Project JEDI.

Farewell, Robert, and thank you for your kindness and generosity.

  1. Thanks for the tip-o-the-hat for Robert. I’d been on many discussion thread on Delphi topic area, learning much from Robert’s Delphi and IT experience.

    I learned about Robert’s passing from the Distributed Proofreaders community project (part of Project Gutenberg), where Robert was a wiki sysop.
