Sad News From The Flex Community

It is with great sadness that I’m posting to let you know that a great member of our community passed away on the weekend. Mark Belsterling, manager of the Philadelphia Area Adobe Flex User Group, passed away suddenly on Saturday afternoon. Some details have been posted to the Philly Flash user group site. The post describes the dedication and interest he had in Flex. According to a story from his wife, the only things that he wanted to bring to the hospital were “3 Flex books, 3 sizes of sticky-notes, 2 pens and one highlighter.”

Here is a photo of Mark. His wife Julee is on the far right hand side, and he’s seated next to her.

His wife has asked that if anyone would like to make a donation, to make them to the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia.
