Yesterday evening a local IH mechanic who ran his own shop for years passed away. He was very well known and well liked. His hands touched a lot of our tractors from my loboy to dads 460 and everything in between. Hes been largely retired for a while now. He at one time was pretty prominant in local tractor pulls as well. He and his sons built a super m that was very competitive over 20 years or more. He was also a nam vet. He was also very big into toy tractors and toy shows. He had 2 boys one of which was my classmate. Our families have known each other since before i was born. Please pray for the family. I may post the obit when it comes out.

My condolences for the loss of your family friend. 

He sounds like he led a good life and left his mark. 

My prayers for the family and friends to help get you all through.

I hope you cherish all the memories, values and knowledge you gained from knowing him, these losses leave a hole that only we can partially fill from knowing them
