Hector Tribute and Obituary
I received this from Hectors friend David and knew i just had to share
Had me crying and laughing .here’s to ya Aussie mate !!!!
I hope you’re all doing well at Wandering Souls, JannaJives etc.
I thought I’d let you know that I visited Haskel’s family yesterday(Sunday afternoon).
We had a chat in his loungeroom for around half an hour and they wanted to know if I’d feel comfortable with moving his tech & capping gear out of his room into another room. His sister has been staying at the house, and they thought it was time to clear a few things out.
It wasn’t a problem for me – although he had a lot of new stuff to perfect his capping procedures. So I had to identify lots of gadgets.
They gave me back an old monitor I loaned him, and a cheap tablet, and my old 2.1 speakers.
His two sisters, his dad and brother in law were there and I stayed and shared stories for a couple of hours. Inevitably, it was quite emotional and heartfelt, particularly for them, as they didn’t know how well I knew Haskel and didn’t quite realise that we spoke on the phone several times a week on the phone for the last 10+ years.
I think his server would’ve lapsed by now. I found an outstanding August invoice for it, so I suppose many of his old links would’ve 404ed by now, but I think many of his torrents will live on for years to come!
Mostly, I wanted to send you something Haskel’s father gave to me – a photocopy of the Jewish News (Sydney) 25 Sep 2015.
Please feel free to share it in the shoutbox, Hector Tribute, or wherever you think is best.
I’m so happy that you’re still keeping the sites going, and love that you’ve kept the tributes too.
All the best!
