The Bit Bucket (Greg Low): IDisposable

Ramblings of Greg Low (SQL Server MVP, MCM and Microsoft RD) - SQL Down Under

Kent Tegels RIP

 

I got the super sad news from Adam Machanic tonight that Kent Tegels had passed away. At the time I recorded my last podcast with Kent, he seemed to be getting better.

I cannot begin to express how sad I am about this tonight. The SQL and XML communities are weakened by this loss.

Farewell Kent and thanks for all the fish.

Kent was a friend. He was smart and funny. This world is a lesser place without him.

What happened? I was a friend of Kent's since around 2003 I had lost touch with him a few years back and had no idea he was ill.

Kent had been unwell for a while. Last year, we thought he was getting better. Sadly, things got worse again.

I was sadly to hear about this today.  I worked with Kent.  He was a great guy and always made me laugh.  But, most of all he was a mentor.  You will be sadly missed.
