| October/November 1987

CYRIL ANTON of Shakopee, MN passed away on January 8, 1987. Cyril died of cancer at the age of 56.

He worked for Ziegler Company in Minneapolis, but the joy of his life was his engines. Cyril restored many gasoline engines some of which he displayed on a trailer that he exhibited at many shows throughout the state. He was a member of the Pioneer Power Club of Hanley Falls and also of the Stearns County Pioneer Club in Albany, Minnesota.

Cyril will be dearly missed by his family and friends and also by those who knew him through the many shows. He will be remembered, however, as his engines will live on as his family will proudly display them in loving memory of Cyril.

Submitted by his niece, Audrey Besse, 511 E. Main St., Marshall, MN 56258.
