THE GOLDEN ROLL


| July/August 1984



A member of the Western Ontario Steam Threshers Association since 1979, HENRY FLEMING of Oil Springs, Ontario, passed away at the General Hospital, Sarnia, Ontario, on March 22, 1983 at the age of 44 years.

Henry was an implement mechanic and he had a great love for aged machinery, particularly, steam engines. Although he didn't own an engine, his desire was partly fulfilled when he became a member of the Western Ontario Steam Threshers Association and was able to help around the steam engines at the annual show at Brigden, Ontario. He also operated the Dynamometer at the Show and took a very active part in all the activities of the Association.

His prize possession was a Bell City threshing machine, which, after his death, his family of two brothers and one sister, donated to the Association, and it is used for the Threshing Demonstrations at Brigden. Henry made many friends in the Association, and he enjoyed traveling to other Shows in Ontario, as well as to the Shows at Wauseon, Ohio and Mt. Pleasant, Iowa.

Only a W.O.S.T.A. member for four years, but Henry Fleming enjoyed every hour of his time given, and is greatly missed by members who knew him.
