Farewell, Marc Orchant

Marc Orchant died this afternoon:

It is with great sadness that I report that Marc Orchant, Husband to Sue, Father to Rebecca and Jason, and friend to so many, passed away just a short time ago. I was notified by Marc’s brother Craig.

His family and closest friends were at his side and his favorite music was playing. Craig said that Marc’s passing was as peaceful and easy as anyone could have hoped and he left this world surrounded by love from so many people that he couldn’t possibly have failed to know how many people cared for, appreciated and respected him.

My thoughts and prayers are with Marc’s family during this difficult time. I didn’t know Marc well, but I counted him as a friend and knew him well enough to know that he was a good man and that this virtual online space where we all meet and write and twitter and blog is a lesser place without him.
