It is with our deepest sadness and regret that we must announce to our Bleeping Computer membership that our own garmanma has passed away. We were informed this morning of his passing. We would like to express our deepest sympathy and gratitude to his family for sharing him with us. We also offer our humble prayers to his family for their loss. Please know that he helped countless people and gave freely and generously of his knowledge and expertise, out of the kindness of his heart. We cannot adequately with words acknowledge all of the tremendous work he did for and with his Bleeping Computer family. We will miss him and his generous presence among us. Thank you Mark, for all of your hard work. Thank you for your generosity through the years. Thank you, for the most precious gift of your time and abundantly giving heart.

Be Forever Safe and Godspeed to you our dear friend. Your BC Family misses you.

Very, very sad news indeed.
I've seen him posting very recently, so it's rather shocking, he's no around anymore.
My prayers go to him and his family...

Hello all this is garmanma's daughter Andrea. I decided to log onto his acct to make sure that no one was trying to reach daddy for help. I saw this topic and wanted to thank you all for your kind words and thoughts. Your prayers are greatly appreciated and my sister and i will be keeping this site in our lives since we will now have to come to you guys when we need computer help. Once again thank you so so much for your kind words.

I have been travelling for hours, and to get home in the middle of the night to read this news is a heck of a shock.

Mark was truly one of the good guys.

My sincere condolences to all the family. My heart goes out to you.
