| March/April 1986

LYLE W. SMITH, 65 passed away at his home November 19,1985 after a long bout with cancer. He retired from General Motors New Departure Hyatt Division, Sandusky, Ohio February 1, 1982.

Lyle had a loving passion for steam engines and saw mills. He owned several stationary and traction engines as well as saw mills.

Mr. Smith's love for steam goes back to when he was a young boy and helped his grandfather and father Lloyd F. Smith with their threshing saw rig around the Collins area.

In 1979 Lyle and the late Clyde F. (Mac) Mc Callister sawed the siding for a century old barn that was erected on the Huron County Fair Grounds Heritage Area in Norwalk, Ohio.

Mr. Smith enjoyed going to several steam conventions yearly. Once steam is in your blood it's there for good. He will be sadly missed by many friends and family.
