| September/October 1983

DICK JONES, of South Lyon, Michigan, died Tuesday, May 24. He was an avid John Deere man having had a few big D's. He also loved the old engines and especially going to the Wauseon, Ohio show. He will be dearly remembered by all who knew him.

JOHN C. SNOOK, JR., 58, of Lafayette, New Jersey, passed away on September 28, 1982 unexpectedly. He was a highly respected dairy farmer of Sussex County as well as the state of New Jersey. He and I were both interested in antique machinery and engines and talked about a club in the area many times. We interested others and the first meeting of the North Jersey Antique Engine and Machinery Club was in November, 1979. He is greatly missed by all.
