Donald Broadribb, 1933-2012

Post by redlers » Sun Nov 25, 2012 11:37 am

With great sadness I wish to inform you that Donald Broadribb has passed away on October 13 of this year.

Don was a Mellel user but, much more that, a great donator in spirit and in deeds: Don diligently and devotedly localised Mellel, and created, wrote and updated his wonderful guide for beginners. Don was always enthusiastic about his work - no matter how small the matter at hand (and Mellel was but a side hobby, of course) - an Esperantist through and through it was measured in deeds as he helped Mellel user enjoy an excellent localised version to Esperanto.

Although I did not meet Don face to face, Don's generous spirit and graciousness came through nevertheless. He will be greatly missed by all those who knew him.

Those of you who new him may wish to read a little about him here:

This is very sad news indeed and a huge loss for the Mellel community. :(

Sorry to hear that. He was always helpful and an encourager on the Mellel forums. Many thanks, Don. And blessings and comfort to his family.

Sad, indeed. Don always was willing to help others and was a huge contributor here.
