| November/December 1996

My dad, ORVILLE COOPER, Findlay, Ohio, passed away November 18, 1995. He enjoyed this magazine so very much, and when he was through with them he would pass them on to me. So now I will continue on by subscribing for the Iron Men Album.

Dad was instrumental in restoring a steam ditching machine a few years back called 'Granddad of Them All' manufactured by the Buckeye Traction Ditcher Company of Findlay, Ohio.

He is sadly missed by his wife of 66 years, Catharine; sons John and Jim, and daughters Barbara, Sue, Evelyn, Elva and Jeanne.
