ERNEST F. BROCKER, of Hadley, Michigan, passed away on February 19, 1988 at the age of 79.

He was a retired Teamster, having driven 40 years for E & L Transport of Dearborn, Michigan.

He was also a long time steam engineer, running and firing steam engines in and around the Hadley area for 50 years.

For many years, he and his partner, Dan Maxfield, ran a 22 HP Huber, and together owned two Port Huron engines.

His greatest love was firing up his 65HP Case for various parades and during the fall season, he and his son-in-law and grandsons would take family members for wagon rides to see the beautiful fall colors of the area trees.

He also was a regular attendee of the National Threshers Assoc. Show, starting at the Blaker farm to its present site at Wauseon, Ohio. During his lifetime he had visited all of the major midwestern shows, and also those in our area as well.
