Dave Kyle, R.I.P.

One of SF Fandom's key founding figures, Dave Kyle, died yesterday. While he enjoyed a good long life, and was honored throughout it, and spent the day before he died where he loved to be, among other fans, it's still a sad farewell. I spoke to Dave a number of times, including at our annual Worldcon Chairs' Photo Opportunity when he was still able to attend Worldcons, and I'm honored to have been able to sign his memory book on more than one occasions. I only wish I could say more than that. I didn't know him well, but I knew of him considerably, and SF fandom is poorer with his passing.
