  • Memoriam

ARTHUR F. PICKUS, born August 12, 1911, passed away December 23, 1990. A charter member of Branch 30 EDGE Antelope Valley Club, Arthur, a natural born mechanic, kept many farm tractors running for the local farmers in his lifetime. He and his brother, Fred, owned and operated Pickus Brothers Shop for many years in Lancaster, California.

Arthur liked to work on the small components of engines such as magnetos, generators, distributors, carburetors, etc.

He will also be remembered for his contributions to the Antelope Valley Antique Automobile Club, for his steak dinners, and the ten gallon ice cream freezers, all gas operated. The Antique Auto Club made him an honorary life member.

Arthur was the brother of Carl Pickus of Vista. He will surely be missed by his many friends.

CHARLES W. CUMMINGS, of Castalia, Ohio, died September 19, 1990 at the age of 69. He is survived by his wife, Marilyn Kuemmel Cummings; two children, Kathy Cummings Webb and William Cummings, and also six grandchildren.
