THE GOLDEN ROLL


| September/October 1992



WAYNE T. (TIM) REESE of Geeseytown, Pa., age 51, died unexpectedly at his home January 17, 1992 following a heart attack. He is survived by his wife Ellen and four children: Melissa, Colleen, Rebecca and Lewis.

Tim was employed as an automobile mechanic for twenty years at Courtesy Motors in Altoona, Pa. He was a life member of the Geeseytown Volunteer Fire Company where he was presently serving as their Chief Engineer, and formerly served as their Assistant Fire Chief. Tim was also a member of the Williams Grove Steam Association, the Nittany Antique Machinery Association, the Artists Blacksmith Association of North America, the K-4 locomotive restoration crew, and the Horseshoe Curve Chapter of National Railway Historical Society.

I taught Tim at the age of 12 to operate a steam traction engine with safety and keep the water level in the boiler, as I had 49 years as a locomotive engineer on P.R.R. Tim made a good Number One Engineer.

Tim will be sadly missed by his family and many friends.
