| August/September 1997

KENNETH ZWINGGI passed away May 5, 1997, at age 74, in Lindsay, Texas.

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.

Submitted by his friend Jimmy Gray, Lindsay, Texas.
