Please remember Robert. Picture of Robert's Face
Robert Hess, 29, an associate editor at MacWEEK, passed away January 12,1996 from complications due to pneumonia. In addition to being a fine reporter and a great guy,
Robert was the founder of the Macworld party lists.
“Robert was truly a gem: technically savvy, insightful, honest, and approachable. We shall all miss him.” -- Guy Kawasaki 1/16/96
“We lost a lot when we lost Robert on Jan. 12. His contributions permeated ... the magazine and the Macintosh community. We will miss him enormously, but
the inspirations of his talent, strength and spirit remain with us.” Ric Ford, MacInTouch
TidBITS remembers Robert (search for Hess on the page).
MacTech Remembers Robert.
