dmr passed away

Dennis MacAlistair Ritchie (dmr) passed away some days ago.

dmr is widely known primarily as one of the Unix and C fathers. He’s also the co-author of the famous “K&R” book, “The C programming language”.

From my point of view the IT world lost a great man whose echo still lives on in many technologies. I would also like to pass on my condolences to his family and friends.
