Christo,

Hendo will be missed, not only by his family and friends and acquaintences who lived nearby and knew his face. He will be missed, too, by all the friends he made on this worldwide Forum, and I'm certainly one of them. Maybe we never met, maybe never spoke to each other face to face, but I knew him through his posts here well enough to know that we have all lost something valuable with his passing.

Rest well, in peace, Hendo, you deserve it.

Jim

A sad day in WFO land.

I hope his family is hanging in there.


They will be in my prayers.


Great post Jim.

God bless.

Dave

Sad news.

If there is any sort of financial support needed to help finish Paul's oven, perhaps those of us in other parts of the world could help in that way.

Rest in peace, Hendo.



We say our ovens will outlive us, we just expect to get more of a head start.

This is so very sad; a terrible thing.

I will always remember Paul for the energy and determination that put into all of his work, and perhaps foremost for the care that he showed for everything that he did.

From my perspective, Paul send me frequent messages with recommendations for how we could improve our plans and our web site, and I always appreciated his "come on James, let's get it right" attitude. He will be greatly missed.

As a reminder, Paul's nifty and innovative Dome Gauge will live on to help other builders.

James

That is so sad.

... Its nice that the dome gauge is know as "Hendo's dome gauge" - that's a good legacy to be remembered by.

I do hope his family is aware of how much we as members cared about him as a quality person. He did have a great attitute, and did offer great ideas. Wish I could have had more opportunity to know the man.

Christo, how far along is the oven? Ken is right. I also believe the family should have the assistance to see Paul's dream realized of a great oven with fun gatherings.

Thumbs up Re: Hendo's Absent from our List and very ill

I'm back,
but only for special occassions.
I read with awe of Paul's passing only last night and was concerned that his beloved project was not finished and possibly not likely to continue with the same vigour and enthusiasm as whilst under Paul's very capable direction.
As I have met Paul, I was hoping to contact Forno Bravo forum members (of which I believe is 3 or 4) resident here in Adelaide and to co-ordinate a group od workers to help his family complete his dreams.
I phoned his wife this morning to pass on my condolences and to make the offer and she informed me that a week to 10 days ago, Paul gave complete and detailed instructions for the completion of the oven to his bricklayer friend, fellow Tafesa lecturer, Dallas.
Margaret, did however take up my offer as back-up should they need help, or advice for the oven's completion.
I hope to contact Bacterium shortly and the other Adelaidians for their support.

Neill
