Farewell, Dave :(

Brussels, February 21, 2016
Dave Needle, 2011

With deepest regret we learnt that Dave Needle passed away on February 20, 2016.

As most of you know, Dave was one of the original engineers who created the AMIGA in the team around Jay Miner. Without people like Dave we would never have been able to feel the joy of a real personal computer.

The management of Hyperion Entertainment CVBA and the whole team behind AmigaOS offer their sincere condolences to family Needle and wish them a lot of strength and all the best.
We all will sadly miss Dave.
