(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – cPanel acknowledged the passing of Senior Technical Product Specialist David Grega on Tuesday, remembering a man the company emphasized acted as “Mr. cPanel” in a high number of regards.
Grega’s work at the company included cPanel & WHM partner training, account management and his contribution to a variety of cPanel-related webinars, podcasts and articles. Grega was also a highly recognizable figure within the hosting community due to numerous appearances at industry events including HostingCon.
In an emailed statement, cPanel referred to David as “source of laughter” and said he “was quick with geeky references.” He’s survived by a recently born daughter whom he had with his girlfriend. To help support them, cPanel has worked to set up a memorial fund through gofundme.com.
“David was an avid lover of life, technology, and cPanel! He drove projects, trained the world, and freely shared knowledge to anyone wanting to learn,” read a statement made available on Grega’s Memorial Fund website.
