Rob “Lilo” Levin passes away

Scott Beale shared some rather sad and unfortunate news with me:

On the 12th September Rob Levin, known to many as Freenode’s lilo, was hit by a car while riding his bike. He suffered head injuries and was in a coma. Rob was being treated at the Neuro Trauma Intensive Care Unit at a local hospital in Houston, Texas where he passed away in on Sept 16th.

As Scott noted, Freenode has over 30,000 daily users chatting on 10,000 IRC channels, including those for WordPress, BarCamp and SuperHappyDevHouse.
