| January/February 1994

FRANCIS DAY, 72, of Andover, Ohio, passed away on August 27, 1993. Francis was one of the founding members of the Ashtabula County Antique Engine Club. He was also an active member of the Pioneer Steam and Gas Engine Society.

Francis was an avid collector of many types of items, including tools, gas engines, tractors, farm equipment, and also steam. Francis also devoted his time, knowledge, and equipment to the engine club and to various community activities. Francis and his wife of 45 years, Marie, could be found visiting shows from New York to Florida, touring with his home power washing machines.

He will be greatly missed. He enriched the lives of all he met and his memory and love of steam and gas engines will live on, for a long time to come. Thanks, Dad!
