  • Memoriam

Western Missouri has lost one of its best showmen and collectors, GEORGE W. DELAMETER, 68 years old, Rt. #6, Lee's Summit, Missouri. George passed away October 14, 1992 from cancer.

George was one of the early supporters of the Western Missouri Antique Tractor and Machinery Association, of Adrian, Missouri. He also had his own 'Old Fashioned Threshing Bee' the past nine years in Lee's Summit.

Besides being known as one of our best collectors, he also had his soft side, such as giving a twelve year old farm boy near Archie, Missouri, his own B Farm-all to restore.

He is truly missed by his many, many friends and fellow collectors.

Submitted by Sgt. C. H. 'Connie' Henley, Retired, 511 Graff Way. Lee's Summit, Missouri 64081.

RICHARD FOURNIER, known as 'Wood Chopper,' passed away September 29, 1992, at his home in Warwick, Massachusetts at the age of 48, after a short illness.
