    I wanted to notify people in the Computer Modding community that my brother Mark Klebofski passed away on March 4th. Computer Modding was a major part of his life and I know he greatly enjoyed the people he met through his various endeavors. A website -- www.mkmods.com – has been created which includes his obituary, celebration/service information, a note section to share thoughts with Mark’s family and donation information for the Washoe High School computer lab. On behalf of my brother, thank you for being a part of his life. If you have thoughts or memories you would like to share about Mark, please use the website. His family would greatly appreciate them. If possible, please pass this information to those who knew my brother. Thank You!

    What? No...

    MK was a great fella. He helped me loads when i first started Modding. If this is true, it's a grim day.

    No way! MK will be missed very much. He gave me some really great info a time or two. A great loss to the community at large. :(

    Wow, this is bad. He setup my current system, very well, a few years ago. A amazing guy and a nice person, I was able to talk to him on the phone a few times while he was modding my stuff.



    RIP man.



    Does anyone know about his family? Are they holding up?

    May the knowledge he shared live on in the memories of those lucky enough to have earned it and may his Mods stand the test of time.

    RIP Mark Klebofski

    Yes, you are right, unfortunately it's him.
    I've left my words on the site.
    Bad end to a good day :(

    wow can't believe mkmods is gone. I always looked forward to his moddign threads to watch the transformation, never a detail left untouched.

    any one know how old he was or why he passed? The obituary doesn't say.

    Follow-Up

    Hi All,

    I appreciate the kinds words about my brother. As I mentioned in the initial post, the Modder community was a great joy for him! Based on several responses, I realized the website was incomplete. Thus I have added Mark's age - 51 and a current photo. Thanks again!

    :(

    My thoughts and condolences go out to you & your family PeteK. From the interaction and conversations I had with him, he was a class act. I'm glad to have been able to share part of my life with him no matter how insignificant (I bought some really old RAM from him & conversed, like many about modding).

    My deepest condolences to you and your family, I have known your brother for some time through these forums, he was a genuine honest guy with a real love for all of this, he will be sadly missed, not just by me but I am sure by all those that had the honour of knowing him.
