Default Dennis Ritchie, creator of C and more, has died

Quote:
Dennis Ritchie, best known as the creator of the C programming language and co-creator of the UNIX operating system, has died at the age of 70 after a long, unspecified, illness. News of his death came from past collaborator, Rob Pike, in a message on Google+ which read: "I trust there are people here who will appreciate the reach of his contributions and mourn his passing appropriately. He was a quiet and mostly private man, but he was also my friend, colleague, and collaborator, and the world has lost a truly great mind."
Just a few days ago I read parts "The C Programming Language" because I needed to do some C programming after many years of successfully avoiding it.
