It’s a sad day for all of us at SamMobile. One of the biggest Samsung fans is no longer among us. This week our dear colleague and good friend Henk van Loosbroek passed away. We firmly believe that Henk was one of the greatest, if not the greatest, Samsung fan of all time. Henk had a passion for the company, he was super proud of the brand and how innovative Samsung has been and still is.
In 2013 I met Henk via Twitter and we started talking. He always made sure that we were the first to report on new updates and the latest Samsung news. Impressed by his dedication and passion, we thought it was time to embrace Henk in our SamMobile team. Since then, he had been an integral part of our team. Henk did his job with pride and joy. Our readers would remember well his ubiquitous presence on our forum, social media networks and various other sites.
In addition to being our omnipresent online colleague that was always the first one to start working from The Netherlands in the early morning, he would also regularly visit us at our office for conversations, laughs, and most importantly, coffee and cake.
The icing on the cake was that in 2019, he was invited by Samsung for the launch of the first foldable phone in San Francisco, the original Samsung Galaxy Fold. Henk loved innovation and thus everything Samsung did, how great that was for him.
Unfortunately, he has left us way too soon. We cherish the memories he has left us with. We remember his love for life, Star Wars and all things Samsung. It was an absolute honor knowing such a gem of a person.
Henk, we are so very happy to have known you and to have been a part of your life! We have experienced wonderful things together, such as our SamMobile team building in Dubai, our Christmas dinners and our beautiful moments of laughter during the office days.
From the entire SamMobile team: Rest in peace and thank you for everything. You will be dearly missed. Till we meet again.
We will never forget you! And may the Force be with you.
Love, Team SamMobile.
