Too young for such a lovely person and friend to leave us behind. Zorro (Dieter) was the epiphany of selflessness. His tireless contributions to Eurobricks and in particular Classic-Pirates were outstanding. To his mother and brother my sincerest commiserations in this time of loss. Here is a little tribute to Zorro from myself and TheBrickster.

Losing someone in a family, even if it's in an online community, is always an unfortunate and sad event. Even if I have not interacted with Dieter that much here in the forums, I am still deeply saddened with this tragic news. Eurobricks will certainly miss his contributions, but most of all, the friendship he has created throughout the community. My sincerest condolences to Dieter's family.

May you rest in peace Lord Admiral Zorro. :sadnew:

Good night admiral.

While I didn't know him personally, I think we've all felt the blow of one of our family's passing. :pir-cry_sad: My sincerest condolences to his mother and brother.

27 is far too young. He will be remembered always by his kindness and good spirits.

Please Read This it Might Be a GOOD Idea

Question, First of all, I understand losing a love one, I have lost one, once a year the past few years *starts crying and looks for tissue*

Anyway could the Mods, Admins, Regulars put together a video with Memorys of Mr Zorro, I never knew him, but maybe a video of pics and Lego Pics, may be a good thing to do in memory of him.

GoodBye Mr Zorro, Thanks for all you did.

May you rest in peace Zorro.

I have read may comments about how kind, generous and friendly Zorro was. For a man as young as 27 to have made a great impression on so many people is amazing.

To Zorro's loved ones I offer my sincere condolences.

This is terrible news. I did not know Dieter as a friend but he seem like a great person from his post I have read, and thank you Dieter for all your hard work on EB, this site is a great escape for many. He will be in my thoughts as well as his family. RIP.

Without a doubt, Zorro has been the most committed and hardworking person I've recruited to Classic-Pirates.com. He was always eager to learn and very agreeable which saw him climb the ranks in record time.

We spent many hours brainstorming future directions for Classic-Pirates.com and he had an incredible knack of keeping me motivated.

Admiral Sir, I give you a final salute!

It's a sad day. :pir_bawling:

Your classic pirates forum inspire me, let me starting my Oriental Empire.

Thank you for providing classic pirates with all the models over the years even though I had only joined two years ago.

You may be moving on but we will always remember you as the admiral.

How Tragic, one so young, swept away by death himself

My deepest sympathy for you, your family and friends

Zorro was one of the first members to greet me to Eurobricks. From that moment I knew that if a staff member greeted mere neophytes, this forum was a friendly community. He will be missed quite certainly. My thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.

Goodbye Lord Admiral Zorro.

I have not been frequenting this forum much of late, but I still check the front page often. So I was shocked and astounded when I read the news of Zorro's passing away.

It's difficult to come up with words to express the feeling that I think we all share, so I'll simply say this:

I never had the pleasure of meeting Dieter, but from what I experienced on the forums, he was a brilliant, lively fellow who always did his best to assist others, whether it be answering a question, giving tips on a MOC, or even just making someone laugh.

Even though we never really communicated directly, I will still miss him very much.

My condolences to his family, especially his brother and mother.

Whatever happened, I hope he's safe and happy.

-A.S.

I've got no words, because of the futility of a speech in these moments, and my scarce (surely culpable) knowing of Dieter's work :sad: .

I just can say, see you :sad: .
