In Memoriam

| February 2007

On Oct. 15, 2006, Ron Bracken of Vestaburg, Mich., passed away at age 74. He was an accomplished machinist, mechanic and enjoyed building model engines from scratch. He also had a love for Model T Fords. Ron's career included a stint at GarWood and 25 years at the Ford Motor Co. in Detroit. He served in the Army from 1952-1954 and was stationed at Fort Knox. He attended many shows in Michigan and was famous for his animated washer woman, which gave many people a chuckle. He is survived by his wife, Mary, of 50 years and three sons, Rick, Jeff and Kevin. He was a great friend and will be missed by all.
