All,

I am sorry to let you know that Marty Robinson passed away on the evening of March 16, 2020 [Typo corrected]. He lived in Rochester, NY, USA.

Marty will be remembered by us as the long-time moderator of this, the DailySudoku discussion list. He contributed very much to the spirit of helpfulness and civil discourse, which was very unusual in the Sudoku discussion lists of that time. He was also very modest, even humble, about his own considerable skills as a pencil and paper Sudoku puzzle solver.

I will remember him as a good friend and counsellor.

Best wishes,

Keith

Hello Keith

I am very sorry to hear this. I'm not around here very much these days but remember Marty very keen to learn and supportive of many who came here. He referred to his love of Sudoku as "the sickness" 😄

Thanks for passing on the news. Did you mean 2010 or 2020 ? [Typo in original message has been fixed by Keith.]

Hello all,
Just now spotted this. Rest in Peace MartyR. His posts here were just what I needed to find my own "breakthrough" moments, along with those by keith. His eloquence and style will surely be missed, but never forgotten. He will always be present, looking over our shoulders as we deem to solve these addictive puzzles we have come to enjoy....

peace....immp

Thank you Mogulmeister. Just now spotted something else. The top banner of the home page reads Marty's Daily Sudoku. That is beautiful! A very fitting tribute indeed.

Sad to hear of this.

A true gentleman (the finest praise we Brits can offer!).
