In memoriam


Jerry Reshew passed away on June 23, 2017, at the age of 88. Jerry was the founder of the Diamondhead International Small Scale Steamup, starting in 1993, and held each year in Diamondhead, Mississippi, and he organized and ran the show for the first 20 steamups. This event grew to be one of the best-known and well-attended steamups in the world, with representatives from up to 13 counties in attendance.

Jerry was the most genial of men and literally made friends wherever he went. He had wide and varied interests outside of live-steam locomotives, and was a pillar of his local community. He was an avid live steamer and also played baritone in the Diamondhead Steamup Brass Band. He was a wonderful raconteur and always had a kind word for everyone. The steam community and all of those who knew him have lost a great friend.
