Bennet Sedacca sadly passed away on Tuesday after slipping on a staircase and suffering a fatal brain injury. He was not only a regular contributor to the Investment Postcards site, but also a personal friend. We mourn this tragic loss.

The following words come from Todd Harrison, founder of the Minyanville financial site, through which I got to know Bennet:

“For those who read Bennet, the takeaway was simple: He was wicked smart, a master of the credit markets and extremely proud of his name and word. He was early in seeing the financial mess, as evidenced by his front-and-center presence in House of Cards, the recently released book that will serve as a tribute to his acumen.

“Those who knew Bennet will remember an acerbic wit wrapped around a heart of gold. He was a tough cookie who demanded the best of himself and those around him, and was never shy about expressing his opinion.
“Bennet was one of a kind and there aren’t words that will ease the pain of his family and friends.”

Rest in peace, Bennet.

Please post your condolences in the comments section. These will be forwarded to the family.
