It it is with great sadness, I announce the death of one of your moderators, a friend, and one awesome guy, u/Carmac

It is with great sadness I must announce the death of a r/geek moderator. u/Carmac.

Carmac was killed when the 2013 Mazda Miata he was driving crashed into a semi-truck and a Chevy Tahoe. He was 71 years old.

I personally knew him for over 8 years and am shocked by this news. He was famous here on reddit for his work with r/reportthespammers, and his classic list of the most over asked questions on reddit. And of course his awesome work here in r/geek, r/democrats and other liberal subreddits.

All of us here at reddit will miss him greatly.

Peace be with you my friend.

  2. I was just skimmed through some of /u/Camac ‘s comment history and now feel a sense of loss. I wish I’d known him, but I’m glad I felt his influence in some if my favorite reddits. My thought too OP and /u/Carmac ‘s family.
