Ralph Koebbeman has passed away. - Posted by: Bob Letterman - February 7, 2010
Our ex-partner in Miniature World Museum passed away last week. He was 95 years old. He was the benefactor to many modelers during the 70s, 80s, 90s and beyond. His collection of models is probably the largest in the world. He leaves behind his wife Rose Marian and two sons. We will miss him very much!

Hi, Bob and Susan
I'm very sorry to hear that Ralph has passed away. As you know, we shared the same hometown and I was fortunate enough to receive a guided tour of his personal museum.
Unfortunately, the last time I tried to arrange a visit he wasn't feeling up to hosting such an event. I can't see how there could be a comparable collection to his anywhere in the world.
