Default Sam Martin of Royal Arkansas passed away

My uncle Sam Martin of Royal Arkansas passed away yesterday afternoon in an accident at home. Sam Loved going to engine shows with his older brother Clyde and I've been going to engine shows with him for over 20 years now. He enjoyed running his 6 Hp Z engine he made a Hit & Miss out of. Sam was retired through Reynolds Aluminum and was a Machinist and Mechanic. Sam would have been 74 years young Monday, his brother Clyde is 87 years old now and Sam will be deeply missed by me.

Jim, Sorry for your loss. I know how you will miss him as my uncle "Bully" passed away in Jan. of this year. He is the one that got me started in this wonderful hobby. I think of my uncle every time I go out to the shop to tinker with an old engine. Sad time for you and your family but remember all the good times running engines together.
