Elwyn Berlekamp, a mathematician known in Go world for his work on Combinatorial Game Theory and its applications to the late endgame of Go died earlier this month at the age of 78.

His Mathematical Go book. https://senseis.xmp.net/?MathematicalGo

Write up of his 'environmental go' variant in which players can take a tokem worth points instead of playing a move. http://britgo.org/results/env/index.html

Numberphile (accessible maths YouTube channel) with him on the dots and boxes game. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KboGyIilP6k

I think this forums Bill Spight knew him personally. Condolences to his family and friends.
