Dear Oisin,

thank you for sharing these sad news. Rob will always be
remembered for his humour, great spirit, inspirational talks
and, of course, his massages:


Rob was a true Pythonista from the heart. I bet he now gives
massages to our late John Pinner and they both look smiling
upon us in our quest for Python3 world domination. He was
such a cheerful person - we'll miss him.

Please pass on our condolences to his family.

EuroPython Society Chair
