At Borden Lumber, Strasburg After Restoration
On Saturday, May 13, 2023, five of our club members went to Marshall and JoAnne Carper's home and moved the 1967 Massey Ferguson 135 farm tractor, that Marshall donated to our tractor club, from his shop to our Agriculture Museum Building which is located on the Shenandoah County Fairgrounds. Marshall was an active member of our club for many years. He enjoyed working on cars and farm tractors, and during that time, he restored a Massey Harris Pony. Then, he bought the Massey Ferguson 135 from one of his cousins and set about having that tractor restored too. From what I have been told, the work was done by the Fadeley brothers. The end result was absolutely beautiful as you will be able to see in the pictures posted below. Sadly, on July 26, 2021 Marshall passed away from lung cancer related to his military service. He will always be missed by anyone who knew him and his tractor will serve to keep his memory fresh in our minds. Enjoy the pictures.
Rest In Peace Old Friend, Until We Meet Again!
