Known by most of the blogosphere as Acidman, he's been in miserable health for some time. Today his daughter, Sam, reports his passing away in his home.
Rob's blog was one of the first that became a daily read for me some years ago and I had him on my bloglist for quite some time. I removed the link a year or so ago when Rob's alcoholism robbed him of his wit and insight and took over with anger and invective. But I never really stopped reading Acidman and he became a regular read again after he returned from treatment and got sober.
Now he's gone. Damm!
