Neil Marr has passed away
I just found out that Neil Marr, former Bewrite editor and MobileRead member, passed away last year. I apologize if this has already been posted (I have spent some time seaching a thread about it, but I couldn't find it). He was a very active member here when he was in good health, and he generously gifted many books of his publishing house to the members of this forum, so I am sure I won't be the only one who will miss him. He was always cheerful, passionate, and fair.
Very sad news indeed.
Rest in peace, Neil.

I have a feeling it was reported at the time, but I may be mistaken. Neil was indeed an active member of the forum and his death is sad news.

Thanks for posting this, I was not aware of Neil's passing, either.
He was a valued member of the forum.

If it was posted at the time, I certainly missed it. Neil was a true and generous individual, and I've missed his presence on MobileRead ever since his health issues forced him to step away. The world is a lesser place for his passing.
