In Memoriam

| October 2005

Alfred J. Tenholder, 76, of Butler, Mo., died Dec. 18, 2004, after a long battle with a rare form of leukemia.

He was a founding member and lifetime member of the Western Missouri Antique Tractor and Machinery Assn. located in Adrian, Mo. He served as president for several years and was a board member for many more.

He loved the long, green line and even had a few "off brands." He attended shows and sales around the country and was always promoting the WMAT&MA show. He had a note card box full of names and addresses, and spent many nights calling fellow collectors, talking about antiques, shows, sales, swap meets and the latest finds. It didn't take him long to strike up a conversation with strangers. He wanted the younger generation to see how things were done in the good old days.

He leaves behind his wife, Betty, of 48 years, three sons, Jim, Darrel and Ken; and one daughter, Debbie. All are members of the Adrian club. The club members will sadly miss him, as he was always there with a helping hand.

Submitted by the Alfred Tenholder family, Butler, Mo.
