Jerry Deagen, an artist whose works have been seen at parks across the country, died at his home in suburban Atlanta. He was 62. Deagen's projects included a restoration of a historic carousel at Six Flags Over Georgia and the Quarry Exhibit at Stone Mountain Park, Georgia's top tourist attraction with 4 million visitors per year.

Very interesting fellow. I wished I had known he had lived in Decatur, it would have been nice to meet him.
Is that a Q-bot in your pocket or are you just happy to see me? *** This post was edited by General Public on 1/20/2003. ***
Please visit the small parks. We don't know what's happening behind the scenes
Knowing now that he restored the famous Riverview carousel, I have some serious respect for this man.
62 is to young to go.

The Demon He's gonna getchya!
I meet him once when I was in 4th grade on a feild trip to Stone Mountain, during the Anabelum Days Festival. Which he did a lot of the conceptuals, and he came down and taslked to all the classes. This was a wonderful man, who's work and commitment to Gwinnett, as a model citizen, we be forever rembered by this Snellville Native.
Blessed Be, Jerry, maybe we will see each other again next life.
