| January/February 1983

DAVE KREITLER passed away October 14, 1982 while enjoying one of his two favorite hobbies-fishing. His other favorite hobby was obtaining and restoring old iron.

He was 61 years old at the time of his death. Several years ago he retired and spent many hours with his hobbies. He will really be missed by his fellow iron collectors as they always ran to him for help when a problem arose.

As a note of interest, his last restoration was a 1917 Titan which was pictured on page 11 of the September-October issue of GEM.
