Jeff,

I have not yet heard back from the family.  However, if you wish to read the
following I am sure they would appreciate it.

"Roman Hustad, OWASP chapter leader in Sacramento, CA, died suddenly on
November 4th at the age of 39.  Exact cause of death is to be determined,
but it is known that he collapsed after arriving in the Las Vegas airport
that evening after arriving from his home in Davis, CA for a conference.
Roman is survived by his wife of 6+ years, Tanya (Burgdorf) Hustad, and his
sons Lucas (4 yrs old) and Wyatt (2 yrs old), his sister Holly (Fail)
Hoeksema, and brother, Andrew James.  The whole family is being supported
and cared for by loving family and friends in Davis, CA at the moment.
Roman was deeply loved by all who knew him and will be remembered and
celebrated as a husband, father, son, brother, friend, as well as an
insatiable adventurer and outdoorsman with a deep intellectual curiosity."

If anyone wants contact information for the family, feel free to put them in
touch with Andrew Hoeksema (Holly's husband) at andrewhoeksema at gmail.com.

Thank you,
-dhs
