Dennis Ritchie and Steve Jobs are the two people who had the most profound influence on my professional career.  It's so sad to have lost them both within the span of the same week.  

Without Dennis Ritchie, there would be no Objective-C, no Mac OS X, and no iOS--at least not the way we know them today.

Here's a good, brief tribute to the man: http://www.wired.com/wiredenterprise/2011/10/dennis-ritchie/.
