    Yeah, a lot of knowledge and skill went with him. He was a hell of a crane operator, welder, and mechanic. He was 83 y/o and still working everyday until 3 months ago. He fell over something in the shop and just never recovered. He wasn't hurt real bad, just never went outside again but for Dr. appointments. He was a great guy, too.

    He actually hadn't taken a machine out on a job for a few years, but he still maintained everything at my sister's 85 stall horse farm, and did stuff that interested him for customers.

    He had a 30B, two 22Bs, and a 15B. He sold the 30B a few years ago, but still had the others.
