Comments on: One of my Oracle heroes has died – farewell to Lex de Haan https://technology.amis.nl/2006/02/06/one-of-my-oracle-heroes-has-died-farewell-to-lex-de-haan/ Friends of Oracle and Java Sat, 01 Aug 2015 11:10:05 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.3 By: Marco Gralike https://technology.amis.nl/2006/02/06/one-of-my-oracle-heroes-has-died-farewell-to-lex-de-haan/#comment-2885 Wed, 08 Feb 2006 12:17:51 +0000 http://technology.amis.nl/blog/?p=1042#comment-2885 I am deeply shocked by this news. I always enjoyed his part on http://www.freelists.org
where he spread his thought’s about SQL at every hour of the day, trying to help others
with their problems (even during his own organized seminars). He made a big impression
on me in a short time.

I first met Lex back in the late 90s, when he took the initiative to organize trainings by yours truly at the Utrecht Oracle offices. Lex was a big man, with a big and wonderful singing voice, and a big heart. I always very much enjoyed my time with him. And, as Lucas, notes above, he was incredibly knowledgeable about SQL and the Oracle database.

I will miss him and the world of Oracle technologists is smaller without him.

I wonder how many of us Lex inspired? (and taught!) I was a SQL and PL/SQL instructor when I started at Oracle and Lex’s depth of knowledge was an inspiration to me back then. It was such a thrill to meet and then get to know him over the years.

We will all remember him.

I know Lex from the time I worked for Oracle EMEA. He was indeed a very nice person.
