| November/December 1996

STERLING FARNHAM, 83, of Warren, Ohio, passed away on June 25, 1996.

He spent most of his life in the Warren area and was a carpenter and cabinet maker.

His many hobbies were hunting, fishing, collecting and restoring antique engines.

When you visited him, he delighted in showing you his fishing equipment and talked about all his fishing days.

He was interested in the old marine engines, as well as hit & miss engines. Some of his engines were sold and shipped to England, where another country now gets to see some of Sterling's hobbies and works.

He enjoyed going to engine shows and talking to everyone. Sterling was a member of the Howcola Hunt Club; Holmes County Steam and Engine Association of Berlin, Ohio; the Ashtabula County Antique Engine Club; and the Northwest Pennsylvania Steam Engine and Old Equipment Inc. of Portersville, Pennsylvania. He was also a great contributor and member of the Cool spring Collectors Club and Museum of Pennsylvania.
