Paul Vigay found dead off Southsea seafront

Posted by Andrew Poole on 16:50, 20/2/2009 |
 
Paul VigayNewsgroup postings and the Portsmouth local newspaper are reporting that Paul Vigay was this morning found dead near his home in Southsea after being reported missing last night. His death is not being treated as suspicious. An online book of condolence has been opened for Paul.
 
Paul was well known throughout the RISC OS community. He became interested in computers around 1978 and had an extensive knowledge of a range of computer platforms from Acorn, Commodore, Sinclair and Atari to mainframe and mini systems to 'current' machines such as Iyonix's, PCs and Macs. In 2005 he started his RISC OS friendly ISP, Orpheus Internet.

We've set up a book of condolence. There's not much there at the moment, but I hope to flesh it out with contributions; http://www.paulvigay.org/

I'm shocked and saddened by this news. Paul was a thoroughly nice chap and was hugely appreciated here at TIB. Condolences to Louie and Paul's family and friends.

That is a shock. I never knew the guy, but he seemed like a first rate ambassador for the RISCOS system and an all round good egg from what I've read.

Please add my condolences.
