R. B. HAYS of Clever, Missouri, passed away in October of 1979 after a long illness. He was a retired farmer and heavy equipment operator and he had a great knack for restoring gas engines back to their original condition.

R. B. had served two years as president of Branch 16 of the Early Day Gas Engine and Tractor Association. He was an active member in Branch 16 and the Ozark Steam Engine Association at the time of his death. R. B. always had time to help a fellow member or friend. He never met a stranger. He will be sadly missed by his family and many friends.
