Rest in peace dear Danny Thorpe

Recommended Posts

Not sure which of the subforums to post, but here it goes:

 

 

 

With great sadness, I just got word from both Julian Bucknall on Twitter and Lino Tadros on Facebook that my dear friend Danny Thorpe passed away on October 22nd, just a few hours ago.

 

Still limited in energy, still recovering from many treatments, I will need to keep it short and hope to gain some more energy and blog a small obituary later.

 

For now, I'm devastated. Loosing a friend and one of the instrumental Delph R&D team members from the days brings so many mixed emotions.

 

I wish his wife Cindy and their loved ones all the best.

 

Rest in peace dear Danny. The world will be different without you.

Danny Thorpe was one of the pillars that Delphi is founded on. A giant among giants.
His legacy is solid and we will remember him with love and respect, and send our condolences to his family.

My sincere condolences to his family and all who knew him. Many of us continue to live by choice largely in the mental universe he architected.
