RONALD J. RUSSELL of Bovina Center, New York passed away January 23, 1985 at the age of 45.

Although Ron was without sight for the last 18 years of his life, he maintained his interest in and continued to work on his gas engine collection.

He was a member of the Pioneer Gas Engine Association and the Capitol District Early Engine Club. A long time subscriber to Gas Engine Magazine, Ron corresponded by tape with many friends from across the country. Before his final illness, he was employed by the Garden Way Manufacturing Company in Troy, New York.

His love of antiques and things mechanical as well as his indominan-table spirit sustained his life and was an inspiration to many.
