| January/February 2003

Tom Buller, 72, of Sardinia, Ohio, died June 11, 2002, after a farm tractor rollover at his residence. A native of Sault St. Marie, Canada, Tom operated Custom Craft Welding in Xenia, Ohio, for several years.

He was well known as a welder, machinist and steam engineer. He was active in several organizations, including the Miami Valley Steam Threshers and the Ohio Valley Antique Machinery Inc.

Survivors include his wife, Sirkka; a son, Terrence; daughters Anne Cornell and Gina Barnett; and eight grandchildren.

His friendship, guidance and soft voice will be greatly missed by many fellow collectors, friends and acquaintances. I am proud to have had Tom Buller as my friend and mentor in the steam engine hobby.
