    Those who've been around here a long time may have encountered Doug 'Popeye' Frederick. 15 years ago, divers all over the country had dove with Popeye and knew him as someone who would befriend any diver, and give them the shirt off his back to help them become a better diver, or just to go diving.

    For the last several years, Popeye had been pursuing another passion in his life, historic railroads, and had been working on the narrow gauge railroad in Chana, NM. (www.cumbrestoltec.com) His health recently took a turn for the worse, and he passed away Saturday (25 July 2020)

    The world and diving has lost one of the great ones.
