American computer architect and high-tech entrepreneur Gene Myron Amdahl died recently at the age of 92.

Amdahl's wife Marian said he had suffered from Alzheimer's disease for about five years, before succumbing to pneumonia. "We are thankful for his kind spirit and brilliant mind. He was a devout Christian and a loving father and husband. I was blessed with having him as my husband and my best friend."
