KENNETH ZWINGGI passed away May 5, 1997, at age 74, in Lindsay,
Before and after Kenneth’s retirement, he restored several
pieces of antique farm equipment. Kenneth built a replica cook
shack. During a local antique show he displayed the cook shack and
several antique tractors. He was an active member of the Cooke
County Antique Tractor Club. He will be missed by all whose path he
crossed. His memory will be with us at all the shows, and when I
see an antique tractor or equipment, I’ll think of Kenneth.
