| June/July 2001

of Las Cruces, New Mexico, died February 21, 2001.

Dan was a founder of New Mexico Vintage Iron, and a member of several other old iron clubs. He was a licensed steam engine operator and was very proud of it. It is hard to imagine anyone more knowledgeable about old engines. He cared very much and tried to help those who would listen to his advice.

Dan always participated to the max at our own show, the Southern New Mexico State Fair, as well as several Arizona shows and some in other parts of the country. He particularly enjoyed demonstrating old tools and equipment found on farms and ranches to youngsters.

Many a youngster (and oldster) knows how we get water from the ground because of Dan. He made many miles of rope, six feet at a time, for all those who wanted to have one.
