Just found out about this...

We have lost fellow geekhackers before...but none that have been so involved in our community.  SmallFry was a great asset and it truly saddens me to hear of his passing. 

I am 100% behind whatever we can do to remember him and honor him here at GH.

I cannot recall having been in contact with him personally, but neither do I need to, to know how good of a person he was, and how much he contributed to the community.

May his soul be in a better place, R.I.P.

This is hitting me pretty hard right now..

Aw, man, how terrible.

Today I mowed my own yard and went swimming with my own teenage son, then I come in to see this.

As I get older, I am constantly reminded of my own mortality, and am working to be "good" with what remains of my life.

But when someone is cut short at the very beginning of a promising journey, well, that is about as bad as it gets.
Inequality affects our physical and mental health, our ability to get along with one another and to make our voices heard and our political system accountable, and, of course, the futures that we can offer our children. Lately, we’ve noticed a feature of economic inequality that has not received the attention it deserves called “intellectual inequality.”
I do not refer to the obvious and ineluctable fact that some people are smarter than others but, rather, to the fact that some people have the resources to try to understand our society while most do not. Late last year, Benjamin Schmidt, a professor of history at Northeastern University, published a study demonstrating that, for the past decade, history has been declining more rapidly than any other major, even as more and more students attend college.

Even though I've not met him in person, I've talked with SmallFry quite a bit on IRC, and he was always a great and fun individual to interact with. Truly tragic and senseless. He'll be missed, but I will never forget him.

Very sad and shocking to hear this news today. I didn't know him as well as some others here did, but I did chat with him every now and then. He was always so energetic and active on the forums and trying to be helpful to others. I regret that I'll never get the chance to know him better.

I'm in shock.

Smallfry and I had a private IRC chat going and chatted nearly every day or two for the past 6 months.  He was in the process of helping me find a moped like his.  I was wondering where he was as of late... I assumed vacation.  This is devastating.  Especially for someone so young and with so much ambition and promise.

He was such a nice and helpful person around here.  It'll feel a lot different without Smallfry posts in threads...

Smallfry, you'll be missed my friend.

I've been driving all day and just saw this.

SmallFry and I had quite a few PM's about phantom stuff and he was very helpful and knowledgeable.

I looked forward to learning more from him.

I believe in prayer and will keep his family and others who were close to him in remembrance.

SmallFry left us too early but may his passion for keyboards never be forgotten, he is missed.

Life's too short not to participate, may we all post to further keyboard science.

Umm wow just wow. The number of things that he and I have helped each other with since we first talked is exasperating. I remember the day he exceeded my post count around 5000 or so posts and hes now well above 6000. I think his account should be immortalized and he should have a special star!

SmallFry and I chatted frequently on IRC. He would often say that I was in his head because we would frequently post the same thing within seconds of each other. We used to joke that I was actually him, come back from the future.

I regret that he was taken from us so young. He was always so enthusiastic about our hobby, that it was easy to get excited about the projects he was interested in.

I will miss SmallFry terribly. Rest in peace, brother. You will forever be remembered.

He was a great guy, helped me in my early days. Helped out so many newbs and he genuinely made me laugh numerous times. I can't think of anything else to say and I'm sad that I shall never see him again. I hope he has found the perfect keyboard where he is now.

This news hit me hard today, and I'm not really good at this so I will just share some memories...

I first met SmallFry at the first Chicago Meetup in a billiards pool hall.  He came with his dad and several keyboards (including this beast http://i.imgur.com/nUHAHVe.jpg)  He and his dad had worked on a PCB for a controller that was so cool and so close to working.  He was in awe of my unicorn vomit Rosewill that had a row of clacks.  So much charisma, excitement, and generosity.

I saw him a second time when he came to the second Chicagoland meetup in Gurnee.  For the first few hours of the meetup I distinctively remember everyone asking where is SmallFry?  We all wanted to see him.  He came a bit late with his Prom date, monster Model F in hand.  He made the rounds and had a great time.

It pains me to take him off the list for KeyCon because I know he would have made it more fun for everyone.

Nathan, you will be missed - you made an impression on all of us whether we met you or not.  Rest in Peace

if he'd ever shared a picture of himself before, i'd never seen it, but when i saw that picture on the caringbridge site, i knew immediately who it was.

smallfry was a moderator before and during the exodus with me. he and i took a lot of crap from the old guard when we first started with this experiment that is the new huge geekhack community, and at some point in the future i knew i was going to want him on staff again. i work with lots of very smart, even brilliant people, on geekhack, in research, my chosen professional, everywhere. nathan was in that stage of brilliance where it's bubbling up from childhood and blossoming into something creative, uncontrollable, but most of all, unique and new.

once upon a time, i thought i wanted to teach at a college level so that i could cultivate minds like his. when i discovered that minds like his were much more common in this community, and almost non-existent at the college level, i rejected teaching and threw myself into building this community. knowing what he would have contributed to the world crushes me.

to all the brilliant friends who have left us, and all the students who climb on their shoulders.

"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Smallfry was the most positive and encouraging person to talk to. I remember being blown away by his shear perseverance and passion for the hobby. I always had funny conversations with him on IRC and he will be dearly missed. I hope his family knows how special we all thought he was.

This is hard to swallow.. couldve seen posts from him less than two weeks ago. I never talked with him or anything but definitly a recognizable name on the forums. RIP

I am so shocked!!

I never traded with him, but once I pmed him by mistake, then we had a nice short conversation. He was such a nice person. 

RIP SmallFry!
