Golden Roll

| November/December 1977

HARVEY L. THAYLER, 82 of Mt. Pleasant, Ontario, Canada died August 14, 1977 at the Brantford General Hospital. He threshed for many years in the Princeton, Richwood and Wolverton area, first with steam, then with a 30-50 Type Y Oilpull, then with a McCormick Deering WD 40 until the mid forties when the combines and small separators took over. He attended many threshing shows in the district and was a most interesting man.

TOM LOBB, 79, of Helston, Manitoba, Canada died Monday, August 15, 1977 at his farm home after a brief illness for three months. For a short while he was a great buyer in Alberta and Manitoba, then took up farming for his life occupation. It was just recently he rented his land. Tom was devoted to his home, family and community having played hockey, and baseball. He was a strong supporter of the Manitoba Agricultural Museum at Austin. He was a director for 23 years up to his death. He was the Parade Marshall for years. I remember him well at the 1976 show. Ken Fordham from Ochre River drove his homemade garden tractor and Tom was on a potato scuffler which meant the parade was over. He had a great sense of humor. Always striving for new and different ideas. He was an Iron-Man with steam threshing outfits. He has owned and operated them. Tom will be greatly missed at our show.
