OT - Passing of my Dad

I just wanted to stop by and say hello to our "friends" on this tractor board, and let everyone know that my Dad Pete (kypete) passed away on Wednesday evening, October 31st, 2012. He was 81 years old. We enjoyed restoring our 1952 Ford 8N together around 10 years ago. (Looking back through the archives, the tractor was finished and running again on Thanksgiving morning of 2002.) It was the tractor I grew up with and started driving at an early age, and then he gave to me. Dad also enjoyed this discussion forum. He was a great man and a great dad, and he will truly be missed. He was a licensed airplane pilot, founder of the local OK Tire store in our hometown, previously worked in real estate, and also worked as a security officer until just a few weeks ago. He was a member of a Baptist church, enjoyed woodworking, fishing, and spending time on the small farm where I grew up in KY.

We were both really glad to have found this tractor board, especially when we began that restoration on the 8N, all those years ago. It's hard to believe it has been 10 years since we restored it. The restoration is still holding up pretty nicely. It was my first time restoring a tractor, and on this particular restoration my dad and I worked a lot together on making it all come together. Those are some very special memories to me. Since that time, I have restored a 1948 8N, and fixed up a worker 2N. Those were fun to do, but not nearly as special to me as the '52. Thanks again to all who make this board a great place to come together and share old iron stories and advice. There definately seems to be a common bond for those who enjoy these old tractors, and there are a lot of good people who share the appreciation of them.
