| May/June 1993

The Mason-Dixon Steam Historical Society is saddened to report the death of RAYMOND H. (BUCK) LEPPO on January 24, 1993. Mr. Leppo was president of the society for a number of years.

He and his father collected steam engines, going west with tractor and trailer to haul them home. They pulled several of them out of the river. He also regularly participated in the Fall Apple Harvest Festival at nearby South Mountain, using his steam engine to boil the apple butter. For many years he owned and operated his own well drilling company.

He was also the founder and honorary member of the Butler Fire Company of Pikesville, and a past president of the Maryland Steam and Historical Society, Inc.

He was the husband of Lula L. Bosley Leppo, to whom he was married 50 years. He will be greatly missed by his many friends and neighbors of Carroll County, Maryland.

JOHN CWACH, of Yankton, South Dakota, died January 13, 1993, just 16 days short of his 82nd birthday.
