In Memory Of

Friend, supporter and community member Thomas G. Graverson, known as "DCTom" by our discussion forum members, passed away on January 22, 2012. He was 80 years old. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. May Tom rest in peace.

Here at Yesterday's Tractors he was a very frequent poster in our Case discussion forum and contributed much to our community of antique Case tractor enthusiasts. We have also known him as a collector of Case tractors and was a very active participant in tractor pulls.

What follows is an excerpt of an obituatary published in his home town:

Thomas "Tom" G. Graverson, Sr., 80, of Bremen passed away January 22, 2012. He was born May 6, 1931 in Bremen to Theodore and Bernece McMannis Graverson. Tom married Marilyn Muncie Dalgarn in February of 1978; she preceded him in death on August 9, 2009.

Tom honorably served his Country in the United States Navy, serving on the USS Boxer. He was a Master Mason and past Master of Bremen post 414; a member of the Scottish Rite and York Rite. He was a member of the American Legion, past commander of the Bremen VFW and was a member of Riverside United Methodist Church. Tom retired from Universal Bearing, where he was one of the first employees. He enjoyed farming and was a member of the Case collectors, owning several tractors that he rebuilt. He was an avid participant of the Antique Tractor Puller Association. He was a loving father, grandfather, and great-grandfather and will be missed.

He is survived by a three daughters, Cynthia (Steve) McKenzie of Plymouth, Lisa (Mike) Harrington of Bremen,Veronica (Gary) Pearce of Brazil, a son, Thomas G. Graverson, Jr., of Brazil, 12 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

Today's Featured Article - Earthmaster Project Progress Just a little update on my Earthmaster......it's back from the dead! I pulled the head, and soaked the stuck valves with mystery oil overnight, re-installed the head, and bingo, the compression returned. But alas, my carb foiled me again, it would fire a second then flood out. After numerous dead ends for a replacement carb, I went to work fixing mine.I soldered new floats on the float arm, they came from an old motorcycle carb, replaced the packing on the throttle shaft with o-rings, cut new ga ...
