| July/August 1982

TONY AUSDEMORE of Neola, Iowa, died May 19, 1982 at the age of 84. He was a life long farmer in the Midwest and in his retirement years had acquired a collection of small gas engines. Many of them he restored and he would stand back with a big grin after starting up about ten of them for his grandsons. He loved attending steam threshing shows and I guess I won't ever see or attend one of these shows without thinking of Dad.

RUSSELL GINNOW, age 61, of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, passed away April 20, 1982, being in failing health for about a year and a half.

He was well known throughout Wisconsin, having attended many engine shows and exhibited many of his fine engines at various activities and engine meets. He was a genius in his line of work as a machinist.

He was never too busy to help someone out with a gas engine problem.

He was an active member of the Winnebago County Conservation Club where he was on the Board of Directors and was in charge of the Minne Tractor Pulls.
