| March/April 1984

REUBEN E. BOETTCHER, 76 of Jordan, Minnesota died unexpectedly June 12, 1983 at the Mayo Hospital in Rochester, Minnesota.

Reuben was born August 25,1906, in Spring Lake Township to Richard and Anna Boettcher. He worked most of his life as a heavy equipment operator and farmer.

He became the treasurer of Scott-Carver Old Time Threshers when it was formed in 1963 and remained its only treasurer until his death.

After his retirement he devoted all his time to the Scott-Carver Threshers. He plowed all the fields each fall and planted and harvested the grain each season.

During the summer he maintained the show grounds, mowing grass, fixing buildings, repairing machinery. During the festival he kept a watchful eye on the threshing rigs.

He is sadly missed by his many friends and relatives and particularly the Scott-Carver Threshers.
