FRANK R. SLICHTER, 71, of Casper, Wyoming passed away July 29 after a five-week illness. He was a collector of gas engines and a member of several engine clubs, having been a charter member of Front Range Antique Power Association and Cowboy State Steam and Gas Association. He loved engines and his engine friends and was never too busy to help his many friends with their problems. He and his wife Jean attended many shows each year and always looked forward to the start of show season each spring. He is survived by his wife, one son, and two grandchildren. He will be missed by all who knew him.
