In Memoriam

Over the years the Straight Dope community has included a huge variety of memorable and remarkable people. Posters come and go for their own reasons, but some have left us much sooner than we would have liked. This is a short list of friends who have died over the years. We miss them, but we're glad to have known them in the first place, and thank them for helping us fight ignorance and pass many happy hours.
