HAROLD MOREROD of Independence, Missouri, 56, passed away on November 2, 1996, after a courageous fight with the complications of scleroderma.

He was a Navy veteran and was retired from General Motors. He was a member of the Mo-Kan Antique Power Association, Inc., and the Western Missouri Antique Tractor and Machinery Association, Adrian, Missouri.

Harold will be greatly missed. He was always willing to help out a friend. Harold collected tractors, gas engines, windmills and cars. He went to most of the shows in this area; even this last year with his health problems he exhibited his engines.

He was a loving, caring husband and father. Harold is survived by both of his elderly parents; his wife Nina; sons Troy, Eric and Zane; daughter Penny; six grandchildren; four brothers; three sisters and many, many friends, all of whom will miss him.

FRANK ARNETT died November 17, 1996, five days after his 37th birthday, after a long illness. He resided in Lakeview, California. Frank attended his first engine show in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, at the young age of four. It was on that day that he was bitten by the bug of antique engines. Throughout his life, he was an avid collector of old things such as marbles, toy cars and trucks, and model tractors. Frank also enjoyed working with cars, especially antiques. Shortly after he was born, Frank's name was added to the title of a 1924 Ford Roadster which was to be a restoration project for him and his father as Frank grew up. His name remains on that title today. The car was a great source of pride for Frank throughout his life.
