| July/August 1973

WILLIAM (POKEY) FRY, born 1890, died 1972. He ran a machine shop in Sedgwick, Kansas for many years. He owned a 60 HP Case engine and also built a 1/4 size Case 65 that he had at the shows. No matter how busy Pokey was in his shop, if you needed something done on your engine, he would stop everything and fix it. He and his father threshed for many years in Western Kansas and around Sedgwick. The Steam Engine Crown has lost a real friend and worker.
