Been trying to find out but cant find any info. It appears to be
unexpected as he was posting just a few days before about upcoming
events later in Dec etc.

Seemingly its said to be of natural causes, although unexpected.

Very sad news.
Always so helpful, and a great ambassador for many years. The community is certainly poorer for his loss.

I received this in an e-mail from Barnsten, 20 minutes ago:

"In Memoriam - Pawel Glowacki
It is with great sadness that we have to inform you about the sudden loss of Pawel Glowacki.
He was only 47 years old.
Pawel was employed by Embarcadero as Technical Lead but worked very closely
with the Barnsten team because he lived in Amsterdam.
Pawel has had great influence on all the Barnsten events and webinars.
He always knew flawlessly what was going on in the development tools market.
Many new themes and programs have arisen from consultation with him.
Most of you have been in direct or indirect contact with him at the live
events or via his webinars, books, blogs, white papers etc.
His optimism, technical knowledge and positive attitude to life left a deep
impression, but also a great emptiness at the loss of such a unique individual.
Pawel will be buried this Friday in his homeland Poland."

On behalf of the Barnsten team,
Raymond Horsten
Director

Yeah, just read Marco Cantu stating that he will be missed.
Hard to believe. And he will be missed by the Delphi community.
His contributions were priceless.
Ways to young to be gone. Very sad.

This is very sad news. I can't find any information about this. Where did you got that information from? Is there any statement from EMB on the web?

It first came from someone that was able to see the Facebook posts on
Pawel's Facebook page, he posted on the Delphi Developer Facebook page,
yesterday. And, Marco Cantu also tweeted a message yesterday about
Pawel's passing.

And, Pawel will be missed.

Sadly its been confirmed by multiple sources including his family.

I was friends with him on Facebook and noticed it there. As I'm not
traveling in recent years I did not know him well but did occasionally
chat with him and most recently briefly spoke with him about something
several weeks ago although I cant remember what about.

Pawel was a nice person with a lot of talent and will be missed far
beyond his family and close friends.

Really sad news.

Every death is a loss, and it is even greater when person still has so much to give.

Very sad news. I think I have been meeting him on workshops and demo's for 25 years or so.

Now he will never be able to sign my copy of his book. His code will live on!

My thoughts go out to his wife and son.

I'm truly shocked to read this, especially as I was chatting to Pawel at a seminar on 29th November. I knew him as a very gifted presenter who clearly had a wealth of knowledge which he skillfully imparted to his audiences.

My deepest condolences to all of Pawel's family members, friends and colleagues.
