We deeply regret the passing of JOHN SMITH on Tuesday, September 10, 1996, of cancer at the age of 64 John lived in Hazlet, New Jersey.

He was known for collecting Woodpecker engines and had the largest collection known.

We all looked forward to the meetings when we would see his great humor and sharp wit. What impressed us most about John was his knowledge as a tool and die maker and the beautiful parts and machinery that his skilled hands could produce, built for his own pleasure and for anyone who would ask.

John leaves behind his loving wife, Catherine, family and many friends.

We are saddened to report the passing of ORVILLE BABCOCK, age 80, of Hastings, Michigan, on November 6, 1996. He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Irene, two children, six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
