This is sad news indeed.

I felt he was one of the giants of trying to make Traveller canon a more consistent and believable place; perhaps the technology was fanciful, but I really appreciated his efforts to make the OTU feel like a place where actual, self-respecting people lived as opposed to just random (and nonsensical) rolls on a 2d6 table.

My apologies, I forgot the translation. Travel well or good journey would be better though (I haven't spoken Danish in over thirty years for personal reasons, but in this case I made an exception).

No problem.
I just used Google Translate (so your translation is probably better).
(from the context, I had an idea what it probably said)

The board rules are to prevent SPAM in some strange language advertising watches or a dating service ... I didn't think that this was something like that.

When I get a link to the original announcement (from his FLGS), I'll post the link.

If anyone knows his family, please extend my deepest sympathies. He was passionate about a great many things... Especially trying to make sense of the OTU.

He will be missed.
Indeed. My condolences to his friends and family. I will miss him. I did not know him personally, but I enjoyed his writing (including many articles on JTAS Online) and his willingness to share his opinions.

Shocking and very sad news for me. Hans will be missed indeed, no matter what, and yes, I am for keeping his presence around by naming a world after him.

My condolences to his family and friends.

Another Ñawka chiming in agreeing on the major suckage.

My world is a little darker now, but still better for having had him in it.
