JOE FAHNESTOCK, a good and beloved friend of thousands of steam
men, tractor men and engine men, passed away September 27, 1988. He
will be sadly missed by all who were privileged to know him, and
happily remembered through his writings in the Iron Men Album, Gas
Engine Magazine and Engineers and Engines.

Joe and his ‘Joe Dear’ tractor have been a familiar
sight at Darke County Steam Threshers, Miami Valley Steam
Threshers, Tri State Gas Engine and Tractor Assn. (Portland,
Indiana), and Poor Farmers’ Campsite, Fletcher, Ohio over the
years. His gift was in writing about people (Iron Man of the Month,
Sparkplug of the Month, etc.), and through them Joe has preserved
their machinery and experiences for all of us to enjoy.

Joe’s wife Pat was always on the back seat of the ‘Joe
Dear’. I am sure she would appreciate a postcard from some of
his friends, or maybe a contribution to the American Cancer Society
in Joe’s memory. Her address is: Mrs. Pat Fahnestock, 1819
LeFevre Road, Troy, Ohio 45373.
