IN MEMORIAM


| July/August 1993



It is with deep regret that I notify you of the death of a very good friend. ROY E. CORNELL, 69, of Wellsville, New-York, passed away December 6, 1992.

When it came to gas engines Roy was one of my earliest influences. My first engine was a Stover, and Roy called me 'Stover' from that point on.

Roy was especially proud of his Tangley calliope. He had it mounted on a custom made trailer with carpeting and steps up to the keyboard. The music from this machine always set a happy, cheerful mood at any show he brought it to. Shows this year will be quiet for anyone who knew Roy and his calliope.

Roy is survived by his wife, Clara Cornell of Wellsville, and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

He belonged to several gas engine clubs in our area, and was one of the founding members of our local club. He was also a member of The Music Box Society. He will be remembered by his friends as a man who would help out in any way he could.
