That is very sad news. A true grandee, and a huge loss to the community, leaving a void behind.

RIP, Mr. Chase.  I hope to learn even half of what you've forgotten.

  Very sad news, when I saw the topic title I hoped it was something else. The cigar industry and world as a whole is poorer for it. 

  It seems very out of the blue

Very sad news. I recently saw a video from a H&F visit regarding the upcoming Reina, and to me he already seemed to be quite fragile, so I was afraid of this.

:flower::flower:  Wow, I'm so sorry to learn of this...I always looked forward to his words and coverage of treasured Havana smokes of yesteryear and aged specialties. He will be sorely missed, and thank you for notifying us of this news.  Real sorrow to our hearts as Havanaphiles  always hanging onto the latest words from Mr. Chase in his coverage of our beloved tobacco treasures...Rest well, Simon. You are missed and you are loved.

V. sad to hear.  He once served me in the Dunhill cigar room on Jermyn Street, where he was helping out/moonlighting, just a perfect gentleman

An acquaintance in the Cigar Industry had told me of Simon's illness in December last year. Sad news to hear of his passing. What a gentleman and what a loss to our Habanos worldwide community.

So sad. Regardless of his obvious knowledge and wisdom in this passion of ours, the self deprecating way he carried that knowledge like it was some sort of happy accident speaks to what a lovely humble man he must of been. I never had the pleasure of meeting him, and know I'm much the poorer for it.

Rest in Peace

Only came across him in an interview with Nic Wing I watched last week. Seemed like a great guy.
