The passing of a legend: Nate “nnenn” Nielson

by

A man no one really knew except as Nnenn passed away earlier this week. This was the last model that he posted on his Flickr photostream.

It is my unpleasant duty to report the passing of our friend and fellow builder Nate “nnenn” Nielson. Nate’s death was the result of an automobile accident earlier this month. A resident of Tekoa, Washington, Nate was a father, an artist, and a professor specializing in graphic design. Nate is survived by his beloved wife and two sons ages 3 and 8.

I can not hope to do justice to Brothers Brick’s tribute so I will not try. All I will say was that he was a truly legendary builder with his own style and flare. His models and his talent will be missed on the internet. The loss to the online LEGO community is nothing to the loss of his family. My heart goes out to his wife and children. Nate you will be missed by all of us.
