| September/October 1995

Lindsburg, Kansas.

EARL C. KUNTZ, 79, of rural Abilene, Kansas, died Monday, April 10, 1995, at his home. Mr. Kuntz was born May 9, 1915. He farmed northeast of Abilene.

Earl and his first wife Glenna, who predeceased him in 1993, were charter members of the Central Kansas Flywheels Inc. of Salina, Kansas, and were annual exhibitors of an early O.M.C. four cylinder tractor built in Salina by Ostenburg Motor Company, a scale model steam engine, and a replica of an early Ford automobile. They had worked at times for the Lester Roloff Mission in Texas, and distributed Gideon Bibles in New York and California.

Earl's survivors include his second wife, Doris; two sons Darrell and Dennis, both of Abilene; five grandchildren and one great-grandchild; and three brothers, Nathan, Harry and Roy, all of Abilene.

Peace be to his memory!
