In Memoriam

| October/November 2003

EDGE&TA Branch 3 lost a lifetime, charter member with the passing of Kenneth Robison on April 4, 2003. Ken was Branch 3's first president in 1979 following a meeting of members of Branch 6 who decided to form a more local branch in the fall of 1978.

Through the years, Ken served on the Branch 3 board of directors and served another term as president. Ken was also our first newsletter editor. Ken, his loving wife, Ruth, and sons Dave and Jay were very active supporters and participants at Branch 3 events, displaying several rare engines in Ken's collection. Ken remained active through the years until a series of strokes made it impossible for him to continue participation.

During WW II Ken was assigned to blimp duty at Moffett Field near San Jose, Calif. Following the war, he followed his love of recreation, working as recreation director for Campbell School District, and recreation and leisure studies professor at San Jose State College. Ken loved the outdoors and was active throughout his life in Boy Scouting at the local and national levels. He was a quiet, gentle man whose leadership, guidance and knowledge were a great inspiration to all of us who knew him. Ken is survived by Ruth, his wife of 62 years, and their five children.
