| August/September 1995

VICTOR A. ANDERSON, 73, of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, passed away on Saturday, May 6, 1995.

Vic was born in Lyle, Minnesota, on July 1, 1921. He was a tractor mechanic for hold Implement of Osseo, Wisconsin, and then for Eau Claire Co-Op Oil until his retirement several years ago.

He collected tractors and gas engines for many years and had one of the finest collections in the area. He was always seen at several of the area engine shows and auctions and proudly exhibited some of his fine engines at the shows until he started having some health problems a couple of years ago. Even though he became just a spectator, he always enjoyed the shows and always looked for a good bargain.

Vic had no brothers or sisters and was never married. He is survived by four cousins and his family of friends.

Victor will be sadly missed by all of us, along with his helping hand and the knowledge he was always willing to share.
