In Memoriam

| December/January 2001

Harvey Hilands, member of EDGE&TA Branch 15, Brooks, Oregon, passed away on Sept. 1, 2001, of a heart attack.

Harvey was inducted into the EDGE&TA Hall of Fame this year. Harvey was what you would call a 'Jack of all trades.' There wasn't anything that he wouldn't do for you or help you with. He was a charter member of Branch 15 and a member since 1971. He held many positions as an officer: 1971-1973, vice president of EDGE&TA Branch 15 when the club was formed; 1973-1978, editor of EDGE&TA Branch 15 newsletter, The Backfire; 1976-1986, secretary/treasurer.

Harvey was not a person who looked for a thank you. He was one of our best supporters and you could always find him working to better the club. Some of the equipment that Harvey purchased for our use included: two forklifts, a road grader, a ditch witch, a backhoe, and three golf carts for zipping around the grounds at Antique Power-land. The most recent donation for the club and Antique Power-land was paying for a beautiful 150x40 foot building for big engines. His generosity will allow us to display and run these engines all year long.

We would not have accomplished so much if it had not been for Harvey's outstanding donations and his involvement with Branch 15, the National, and Antique Power-land. Harvey was loved and will be greatly missed.
