Remembering John Vlissides

I am deeply saddened to hear that John Vlissides passed away during thanksgiving after a long battle with an illness (see here and here). I had the pleasure and good fortune of meeting him once and only once at OOPSLA a couple of years ago. I now recall how I was struck by his modesty and friendliness. He was a great author, contributor and an overall very nice guy. He will greatly missed by the community.
