| September/October 1993

LYNN MIX, 83, Hastings, Michigan, passed away March 3, 1993. He was a journeyman electrician for over 30 years for a local auto parts supplier. He owned three steam traction engines in his lifetime and always kept them up in top shape. He will be remembered for his shingle mill that he and his son operated at several shows and events, but we think he will be best remembered as an extremely hard worker and a fair and honest man.

Lynn was a long time member of the Michigan Steam Engine and Threshers Club, the Kalamazoo Antique Machinery Club, Charlton Park Steam and Gas Engine Club, and several other antique machinery clubs. He loved to ride Harley Davidson motorcycles and owned and operated his own dealership for some years.

He touched many lives and will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

Submitted by his son, Larry Mix, P.O. Box 89, Freeport, Michigan 49325 and close friend, David Wachter, Holt, Michigan.
