Nick Ing-Simmons

I was saddened to hear today of the death of Nick Ing-Simmons, who passed away on Monday 25th of September as a result of a heart attack. Nick was a long time member of the Perl community, and perhaps best known for his work on Perl/Tk which for many years was the only native graphical front end for Perl, and is still heavily used today.

Nick is survived by his partner, Medi, and will be sorely missed.

Update: Details of the funeral arrangements.
