The man known to all as The Father of the Amiga is gone. I just pulled
this posting off his own BBS, "The Mission", posted there today by
his co-sysop.

Those of you who knew Jay or had met him at the many Amiga shows
he attended, please join me in your own private way and remember
this wonderful guy who gave us all so very much.

[Subject ] Jay Miner

Jay Miner passed away June 20, 1994, at the El Camino Hospital in Mountain
View.  The actual cause of death was heart failure, but it was the result of
kidney complications.  A private memorial service will be held in July.

He'll be greatly missed and much remembered.
