Stan Flack, MacCentral and MacMinute founder, dead at 42

“It is with incredible sadness that I write this note today. MacCentral and MacMinute founder Stan Flack passed away quietly on Monday in his Prince Edward Island, Canada home at the age of 42. According to his sister, Stan died of complications to a pre-existing condition,” Jim Dalrymple reports for Macworld.

MacDailyNews Note: According to a report by The Inquirer’s Nick Farrell, Flack “died due to health complications related to a congenital liver disease.” Full article here.

Dalrymple continues, “In 1999, Stan sold MacCentral to Macworld. That was definitely a good thing for everyone involved, but a couple of years later Stan got the itch to start another new site. It was then that he founded MacMinute. I can’t begin to explain how sad I am today… Stan was not only my friend, he was a brother. Rest in Peace, Stan.”

Macworld and MacCentral’s Peter Cohen has posted a remembrance of Stan Flack on his personal site here.

Our condolences to Flack’s family, friends, and co-workers.


  1. The best site at its time and before it sold to MacWorld was MacCentral, hands down.

    Stan did an excellent job, and a lot of us will remember him for what he did for the Mac community.

    My guess is that he already has another bank of servers and a new site good to go in heaven to serve all the other Mac folks up thar.
