Re: RIP Frans Thamura

Oh dang, this is really sad news indeed!

I would occasionally get his emails about something related to technology. Then we'll exchange a few emails on the topic and then he'll disappear again. I'll truly miss those sporadic and deep conversations.

He was a very good hearted soul helping underprivileged kids in Indonesia. The world needed more people like him, not less.

RIP Frans!

Hi guys,

It saddens me to announce that Frans Thamura, a friend and Leader of
JUG Indonesia, has passed away today. Details are scarce, but he had
been hospitalized due to stroke since early of June 2017.

For those who don't know him, Frans Thamura is the pioneer of JUG in
Indonesia. He also had been helping underprilidged students to learn
Java and lift their standards of living. He's outspoken, a bit
controversial, but idealistic with his dreams. He will certainly be
missed by many.

Note: I'm no longer in Indonesia, so I'm not the best person to help
deliver anything in person to his family.
