ELLSWORTH WEILAND of Sandusky, Ohio, passed away on May 6 at the age of 72, of an apparent heart attack.

He was a machinist and a collector of gas engines and light plants. He had a shop in which he enjoyed working and fixing and restoring things. He enjoyed going to Portland, Indiana, where he would take gas engines and camp there. He also would go to Pennsylvania to the swap meet and find all sorts of goodies. He made new friends and was well liked by all who knew him. He is greatly missed.
