A friend at work just pointed me to this post at the SQL Server Manageability Team Blog. Ken Henderson has apparently died? Is this true? I'm looking up at three books by him sitting on my shelf. He was a pretty major resource to me over the years. He's really and truly going to be missed.

Oh man! That's terrible news. I met him at Pass last year. Such a nice guy and so humble. Spoke about his work on management studio, and his plans for updating the Guru's guides later this year.

Jim Gray (exactly 1 year ago) and now Ken.

Edit: Just dug up a photo from pass.

It's true. I heard about it from people at MS on Sunday.

The funeral is tomorrow in OK, flowers have been sent on behalf of the community.

Thanks for confirming Steve. I'd done several searches and hadn't come up with anything.

That is truly sad news.

I thought he was fairly young.

This is a very sad day if you use SQL Server.


Kind regards,

(PHB) I think we should build an SQL database. (Dilbert) What color do you want that database? (PHB) I think mauve has the most RAM.

What a great loss for the SQL Server community. Does anyone know if Ken had been ill? He was so young.
