Seth Darwin McKitrick, 19, of Maine, N.Y., died unexpectedly Aug. 1, 2009, in Windham, N.Y.
He had just finished his first year at Binghamton University, where he was pursuing a degree in engineering.
He loved to tinker with old engines and looked forward to his local engine show this year. He had two new engines to show and had plans with his cousin and fellow engine enthusiast Christopher Underwood and friend Brad about their display.
Seth always did and continues to make his parents very proud. He was a son any parent would be proud to have.
Editor’s note: Seth was profiled in Young Iron in the September 2009 issue of Gas Engine Magazine. The staff at GEM extends condolences to Seth’s family and friends.
