RIP Jim Nagel: You will be missed, my friend.

      Comments Off on RIP Jim Nagel: You will be missed, my friend.

It is with the greatest regret that I have to pass on some very sad news – the recent passing of Jim Nagel. Martin Wuerthner has been in contact with the family, and released the following statement on their behalf:

“It is with great sadness that the family of Jim Nagel announces his passing peacefully on Saturday, March 21.
 
Most RISC OS users will know Jim as the editor of the Archive magazine since 2007, and before that as the author of the Acorn column in the Computer Shopper magazine. Jim has been a well-known figure in the RISC OS community for a long time and a regular exhibitor at RISC OS shows. His humour, dedication and enthusiasm will be sadly missed.
 
On behalf of Jim’s wife Viola, his sons and grandchildren,
 
Martin Wuerthner”

I can only echo the above sentiment. I’ve known Jim for a long time and – like many of us in the RISC OS world – very much considered him a friend. He will be very sadly missed, and although the current situation means I will have to do so alone, I will be raising a glass in his honour tonight.
