RIP Bod/Stax

Post by Dal »

I read today via the "Atari ST Demoscene" Facebook group that Stephen Jones (Bod/Stax) has sadly passed away. :(

The Atari-Forum team extends its deepest condolences to his family.

I'm truly shocked and saddened.

Middle aged, a rough contemporary for my age group.

He had some major issues, so I guess these contributed to a cause of death?

Still, very sudden and sad. Rest in Peace.
