RAY SCHAAPMAN, 48, Manteca, California passed away August 5, 1974 from a heart attack. He was always ready for a gas-up to show off the fruits of his hard labor of restored engines and tractors. His sons, Ronnie, George and Randy are chips off the old block and are following his footsteps and have inherited their Dad's enthusiasm. He is sadly missed by all.
