Daniel August Krentz, retired LEGO designer passed away at the weekend. I'm proud to say he was my friend.
Daniel was born and raised in the USA in 1937 living in Colorado and Chicago, he discovered LEGO bricks while at college in the 1960’s. He bought as many brick packs as he could afford on his salary and soon his fan creations came to the attention of LEGO’s US distributor at the time (Samsonite) who began using them as display models to increase sales. Soon after they showed off his creations to visiting LEGO reps he was recruited to be a designer in Billund Denmark. He was both the first AFOL and the first non-Dane hired to be a designer by the company. He started work as a designer in the mid 1970’s and continued until the year 2000. In Denmark he fell in love and married his wife who passed in the 1990’s, attended church every Sunday and lived a quiet peaceful life in Billund building with LEGO bricks every single day.
Daniel was the designer of many LEGO sets in his time but among his most iconic sets are:
375 Classic Yellow Castle (and all the castle sets that launched with it)
6067 Guarded Inn
6073 Knights Castle
6074 Black Falcons Fortress
6078 Royal Drawbridge
6081 Kings Mountain Fortress
6267 Lagoon Lock Up
6276 Eldorado Fortress
And dozens upon dozens of others.
His funeral is on Tuesday 21st.
If his work or life had a positive impact on yours I will make sure his family gets any messages you would like to leave.

Slava mu  :sad:

Gospodin je znači zaslužan za neke moje omiljene setove iz detinjstva.

Dovoljno da je uradio samo ova dva legendarna seta

6067 Guarded Inn
6074 Black Falcons Fortress

sigurno i dan danas medju top 10, i da udje u legendu

Vecna mu slava i hvala :(

6276 - set koji mi je otac kupio u Segedinu za deseti rodjendan, neponovljiv je. Da ne spominjem legendarne setove poput 6081 i 6074, koje sam kasnije kupio.
