While I didn't know Harry well, I do remember him as a good, decent, and right-thinking fellow. I also remember that he really liked the BBQ at Bryant's, the old, truly KC joint, when I took him there for lunch years ago. Yes, as folks have written, he will be missed.
As Anne said, Harry Trebing was a good institutionalist and a very good person. His works -especially on public utilities and regulation – will be read for a long-time. He was also very kind to young academics. Early in my career, Harry helped me a great deal. I am sorry to hear about his death. He will be sorely missed.

Dear Family and Friends:
I wanted to let you know that our wonderful father, Harry Trebing, died peacefully yesterday in Washington, DC. Evan, Jody and I have attached a letter to you, a copy of his obituary that will be placed in the papers, and a marvelous article written several years ago by his great friend, Dave Schwartz.
Please feel free to forward this to his many friends and colleagues.
Kind regards / Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
