Charles Lasner.  He passed the weekend of April 3rd due to complications from the COVID-19 virus.  I'm fuzzy on his exact biography, but he was big in the development of OS/8 for the PDP-8 at DEC.  His current project was an update of OS/8 which he called P?S/8.  Apparently he owned multiple LINC-8's according to comments on the Facebook group.
