Just saw the notice of Rich Hennessey's passing.

How sad and what a great loss. Rich was a dear friend and close advisor. I value the time we spent talking and brainstorming. I only wish there had been more.

How many of us delighted in Rich's genius as a craftsman, his dogged insistence on authenticity. He was truly a rare avis in the best and truest sense.

My prayers, and that of my wife, who often shared her mutual passion for geology with Rich,go out to his family and friends.

Travel well, my friend, on this the next path on your soul's journey knowing you were and are loved.

Rest in peace, Rich.

Oh my gosh…in complete shock…

I literally just chatted with him after placing my first order…he was so forthcoming and willing to give advice to someone he never met before. This was maybe a week ago.

Seemed like such a great guy…jeez…

wishing his fam and friends inner peace and strength at this time...

This just sucks. When my wife was battling cancer Rich sent us an amazing little package. A unique pendulum for both of us a wonderful letter to go with them. A huge loss for me...for us all.

RIP Rich

Rich was a truly kind, generous and good man who I shall dearly miss. He inspired me in many ways, always ready with encouragement, wit and wisdom. He performed real magic, turning the products of my imagination into beautiful realities.

While many fine people contributed to Trybil it was Rich who gave me the confidence to fully explore and resurrect the idea of the Multi-Bob Pendulum in the first place. His many creative renditions gave life to the idea and the book would never have happened without him.

Rich always had time to answer a question, help with a bit of research and offer friendly advice. His joy in his art was both obvious and contagious. The pendulum swings a bit slower today.

I had only recently started to get to know Rich, but even in that short time I had come to like him very much. I am sorry that I will not have the chance to get to know him better.

Very sad to hear this. I dealt with Rich on more than a few occasions, and he was always very friendly and helpful. He had excellent customer service and quality ware - artwork, actually. One of my best pendulums came from him, and I cherish my key/bracelet pendulum. He was a good one and will be missed. Condolences to his family.

Rich was a pleasure to speak with and he will be missed. When I bought a number of things, he hid a little note in one of the items. The apropos comment was a rare touch and made me laugh. He served others with his artful creations and attitude. My regards to his family and I am sorry for your loss.

I, too, am shocked and moved. The main thoughts that surged into my mind have already been written by Tony, Bill, David and others.

I still want to know some things. Like, what was the cause of death? Was it expected, or sudden? How much family did he leave, and are they okay?

So if anyone has information that can be shared, thanks in advance.

This is very sad, Rich and I corresponded for years and exchanged many ideas, he was truly one of the most generous people I had met on this board. I'm truly shocked to hear this. Rest in peace, Rich, you'll be missed.
