Wikipedian Fg2 has died according to this obituary and outside corroboration by his friend and co-worker Shirley Tamura. In life he was Frank J. Gualtieri Jr., a native of Canton, Massachusetts who traveled to Japan extensively and worked as an educator and translator.
In memoriam, three of Fg2's photographs have been nominated to be featured pictures on the English Wikipedia. As a further memorial, a group of editors have chosen Mount Fuji, one of his favorite articles, as a memorial collaboration to bring to featured article status. All editors are invited to collaborate.
