Jason said: With great sadness, I must report that Fred has passed away. He had apparently been in poor health for some time. His daughter reached out today to give us the news.

Fred, I will miss our conversations. After Nelson Mandela passed till now I know it was a difficult journey for you, now you rest. This past week I came out of retirement and mentioned your name several times, I did learn from you. Our heated threads were because we are all high strung... or we could not be as creative as we are. I wish your family the very best. 


Edit: Lighten the image a bit. - I think this was one of the happiest moments in his theremin design. His kids were with him at this event. He set up 12 of these or was it more and enjoyed the public interaction.

Oh no.  In his last email to me in December he instructed me to tell people here that he was OK, but he described a murky yet dire sounding health situation which involved visits to the hospital ~3 days a week.  In true Fred fashion he said it was predestined; whatever it was would play out regardless. 

RIP my dear friend.

A real bummer.   Fred was a great contributor with a wealth of knowledge (and opinions.)  We are lucky he shared them here.

I agree, Fred was extremely knowledgeable and helpful almost to a fault.

Does anyone have a good picture of Fred they could share?  The one Christopher posted is the best I've seen of him but he's in the shadows and it's kind of low resolution.

Very very sad to hear the news of Fred's passing.

The world is worse off without him in it.

Anyone heard anything else about poor Fred?  I emailed his sister daughter but no reply.  Haunting for an announcement but nothing there either.  Not superstitious but wondering if he passed on Clara's birthday...
