Harry Horner died Friday, Oct. 4, 2002. Many of us have fond memories of Harry and his stories of the old days in the oil field. An invaluable resource of information and knowledge, Harry was known by nearly everyone in the oil field engine hobby, and saved many engines now being enjoyed by collectors. It's not hard to find someone who bought an engine from Harry.
