Probo was one of the most prolific questioners and commenters in the early days of Uclue, and before that as probonopublico at Google Answers.
He died yesterday, in his 80s, from organ failure due to complications of infection.
Perhaps those who interacted with him can use this space to post their memories and thoughts. And if someone would like to compose a short ode, please post it in the answer box.

Hah! I never heard that JAHNKE LIVES story before (might have been when I was banned from GA...but that's another story).
Bryan contacted me for some private work every now and then. I can't even recall the subject matter at this point, but he was such a pleasure to work with. And thankfully, he never needed any market research...everything he asked about always had its own peculiar fascination.
