Obituary for Jonathan Portnoy
Jonathan David Portnoy, 29, of Wilton, died August 10, 2016. Computer wizard, vaping expert, faithful friend, and original thinker, he was known for his wit and intellect. He was widely read, had eclectic interests, and willingly shared his knowledge.

His fascination with computers began at an early age. Totally self-taught, he became a prominent member of several online communities, including IRC White Tower and Gentoo Linux. At 15, Jon was named head of Gentoo Developers Relations. He excelled at software programming, which he pursued on both a freelance and volunteer basis.

Jon also recently became an e-cigarette aficionado and enjoyed creating a wide variety of unique flavors. He loved kayaking, propagating plants from cuttings, debating politics, and listening to music, especially at an electronic dance music festival.

Jon will be deeply missed by his parents, William and Diane Portnoy, his brother Joshua, and his friends – locally and online around the world – as well as his vape customers.

Donations in his memory may be made to the Perl Foundation at
