Sadly one of the world's greatest muck diving pioneers died today in Sorong, Indonesia. He was among the original discoverers of Wunderpus and the Mimic, and was arguably the single most important person in popularizing the art of muck diving, as well as an appreciation for muck animals. He will be missed world over, even by those of us who never had the pleasure to meet and dive with him.
