John Dobson, famous for his "sidewalk astronomy" outreach efforts and the Dobsonian Telescope, passed away on January 15th, 2014. John was an amazing man and had a huge impact on our hobby, may he rest in peace.

There are discussion threads about John in both the "Outreach" forum (here) and "Reflectors" forum (here).
