MELVIN S. EAVES, 88, born May 22, 1908, passed away May 28,
To all of you who might have known our beloved dad, he was a
true and dedicated man to his hobby for some forty years. At one
time in our dad's life he owned some sixty or more engines. Our
dad was a man who would build a model engine only one way, the
right way. He was, without a doubt, a real machinist, one of the
best we ever knew.
He rose from the back seat in Freemasonry to the top seat as
Worshipful Master of his lodge. He was a man of his word and kept
his word until his last day on this earth.
His loving care was put into his engines and we hope the ones
sold will run for many years to come. May you rest in peace, Dad,
for these old irons will run on for you. God Bless you, Dad.
Submitted by his sons, Sterling Douglas Eaves and George Emmett
