Heino Heinsoo, 1929-2023

My father, Heino Heinsoo, died last week at the age of nearly-94.

The final fall was bad. There were a couple beautiful moments after the fall.

Family, friends, and hospice came together to help him die at home, in the same room where he cared for his wife, my mom, when she died fourteen years ago.

I'm going to miss GenCon. I'll be in touch with the 13th Age 2E playtest folks and my other projects some time in August, I expect.


  1. My condolences. May his memory be a blessing and a comfort.

  2. Very sorry to hear that, but 94 is an awesome age. My condolences, all the best, and take good care of yourself.

  3. Sorry for your loss, Rob. "From the unreal lead me to the real. From darkness lead me to light. From death lead me to immortality."

  4. My condolences Rob, kind regards MOB

  5. Sadness, melancholy and a touch of wonder over living through all recent history.


  6. My condolences Rob. May Mr Heino rest in peace.
