Mr. Emory C. Forman of Tacoma, Ohio passed to his eternal reward last March at the age of 87. He was a very personal friend of mine but because of distance we were not together much. However, when we traveled route 40 we always managed to stop for a visit, sometimes prolonging our visit to three days. Needless to say it was a great pleasure to be with him.
He was a frequent contributor to the Album. His articles were always informative a n d he always reported the humorous side of life.
He was a telegrapher and Thresher Salesman. Selling Gaar Scott Threshing machinery and making friends with all whom he met.
Collecting pictures of all makes of threshing machinery was his hobby. He had hundreds of these pictures.
One sad feature of his life was that when the Reunions got into full swing he was not able to attend them.
Hundreds would have enjoyed his company and friendship had it been otherwise.
He lived a good life and had many years and blessed the lives of hundreds. What more could one desire?
He is survived by his wife who is ill in an institution in Columbus, Ohio.
Thus the pages of the Big Book close on the life of a good man. Elmer
