| May/June 1977

GORDON R. WILSON, 59, of Haines City, Florida passed away suddenly of an apparent heart attack on January 17, 1977. Mr. Wilson is well-known among the flea market dealers, as the Wilsons have participated in many of the Steam and Gas Engine Show Flea Markets for the past seven years in many states.

Submitted by his wife, Mrs. Berniece B. Wilson, Box 173, Haines City, Florida 33844.

CHARLES E. SMITH, 51, died December 10, 1976 from a long illness. 'Charlie' of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin was a member of the Early Day Gas Engine and Tractor Association Branch #2 of Wisconsin (The Sussex Show). He will be remembered by all for the exhibit of his 1923 Baker steam engine at our shows. Charlie, along with his father, Charles F. of Columbus, Ohio always enjoyed the shows and meetings of the club. Show time will not be the same without Charlie Jr. but we all will be looking forward to the Baker engine and Charlie Sr. for more shows to come.
