My deepest condolences to Henry's partner, his children, and the rest
of his family. :(

His passion for the Web and keen intellect will be missed dearly. I
met Henry over 15 years ago as the WebID work was just forming -- back
then, and to this day, we were all trying to figure out a way to
re-decentralize the Web and empower people to control more of their
digital existence.

I remember countless discussions with Henry about the philosophy of
the Web and what it should become to better help society. Engaging in
a discussion with Henry about these topics was never a shallow dive;
the thought and care he took at analysing not only what he was saying,
but what you were attempting to argue, demanded the same thought and
care when engaging with him. He made us all deeper thinkers and
communicators, which is one of the things he valued most. He cared
deeply about what we were all building here.

He was generous with his time, curiosity, and passion. I hope we can
all live up to carry on what he shared with all of us over these many
