One of the first and well known Palm OS developer, Bodizar Benc, has recently passed away.

The news was posted on a messageboard, "It's with the greatest of regret that I pass on the sad news that Bozidar Benc passed away yesterday. As some of you may know he was involved in a serious car accident in early February. Hopes were high for a full recovery, but unfortunately his condition worsened and finally he succumbed to complications caused by the original injuries."
Bozidar was 47 and is survived by his wife and two daughters. He lived in a small town east of Zagreb in Croatia. There is more about him in a recent interview.
Bozidar was one of the original developers of Palm shareware. He has influenced a large number of current Palm OS developers and his titles were held in very high regard. He's best known for his suite of pop-up tools, LauncherIII and more recently LauncherX.

For those who would like to send a note or contribution to Mrs. Benc in memory of her husband, the address is:

Mrs. Bozidar Benc
Benc Software Production
Kosarevac 52
35000 Slavonski Brod,

Editor's Note:

How come that we didn't know of him when he was alive? The reason of CROWN existence is to find those precious pearls and put them on the necklace. Bozidar was 47 years old and belonged to the team that developed one of the most significant software today and where were we? And at the last meeting of Croatian community of larger New York I proposed Palm software as a base software for our community data base.
