Dean Freytag, 86, passed away Christmas night.

My condolances to his family and friends.

I met him at the 2005 NMRA convention and our brief meeting left me glad to have met a gentleman and incredible modeler.

The following is an excerpt of a very fitting eulogy by RR Friend Bill Linson for Dean.
