| December/January 1995

DONALD L. ABBOTT, 58, of Lexington, Indiana, passed away on April 4, 1995 after a two month illness.

Don was a custodian for Hanover College in Hanover, Indiana, for the last eight years. He is survived by his wife Mary; two sons, Michael and William; one daughter, Penny Brittain; three grandchildren; his mother; one brother; and one sister.

He loved anything Massey-Harris related, having been around them all his life. He was always willing to help other collectors out, having a vast knowledge of technical information. He also loved going to tractor shows as often as he could, particularly the shows at Rushville and Portland, Indiana. He especially enjoyed the 1993 reunion at Georgetown, Ohio, and the Massey Harris show and collectors banquet.

Pop, as he was affectionately called by his family, will be very sorely missed by his family and friends.

Submitted by his son, Bill Abbott, of 6546 S. SR 62, Lexington, Indiana 47138.

WILLARD MAIN, of Macon, Missouri, passed away March 29th, 1995, after a long illness.
