| December/January 1996

BILL PHILLIPS, 81 years of age, of Cincinnati, Ohio, passed away on March 7, 1996 at North Fort Myers, Florida, where he had spent the winter months for the past 17 years.

He had been a member of several antique machinery shows within 150 miles of his home in Cincinnati, and he was a lifetime member of the Rushville, Indiana, show.

During the years prior to his retirement, he had been a crane operator.

Bill had collected many items of antique machinery during his lifetime, most of which were small enough to be transported on his tandem-axle trailer behind his pickup truck. One of his favorite exhibits was his Rumely 15-25 L OilPull.

He and his wife, Helen, enjoyed attending these antique machinery shows and visiting with their many friends.

Bill will be sadly missed by many friends, wife Helen, and daughter Pat.
