|Flexibility of Spirit's Roof Object tool|
Sergej was a proud father of the roof object. I had unknowingly conversed with him earlier on news groups about the RO where he anonymously posted on comments about the tool. He was only too glad to add to my knowledge of the tool and excited about the prospect of updating and improving it for a future release. I'd given him my long list of what it would look like. He was very appreciative of my video series on youtube that allowed people to see it was actually much more capable that is at first evident. I even discovered several tricks that he did not know of. He even then created his own blog to demonstrate his new tool's flexibility.
We were on polar ends of faith and had some vigorous, robust discussions about the existence of God and the meaning of life.
Around 6 months after my last email conversation with Sergej, a programmer from Autodesk emailed me to say he had heard some news. Sergej seemed to have suffered a heart attack alone in his home after having gone out dancing. I know he enjoyed dancing and travel, having sent me many photo's on cruise ships and European cityscapes. No family were known so his employer, Softtech Gmbh were kind enough to take care of his funeral. "The burial was held on September 15, 2014 in Neustadt an der Weinstraße. He was placed to rest underneath a beautiful tree in the cemetery, and a headstone has been placed to honor him as an individual. Following his death, an obituary was placed in the newspaper" (picture above).
RIP my friend.
