In Loving Memory of Mike Skurski

It is with a very heavy heart and great sadness that we must announce the passing of Mike Skurski on Thursday, October 27th, 2005. Mike passed away after post-operative complications. He was at home from the hospital, being cared for by his parents.

Only some of you may have known Mike, but many, many people knew of Mike-particularly in the Photoshop development community. He was a very talented software designer and engineer. He liked to mention that he has been working on Photoshop Plug-ins for almost as long as Photoshop has had plug-ins. He received a floppy disk with a hand written label from Thomas Knoll with the then, Photoshop 1.0 SDK-such as it was.
