Thankyou for my working career at JD Des Moines Works. Without your genius and ingenuity with cotton harvesting equipment, there may not even be a factory there anymore.

John Deere has lost one of its most iconic retirees. He an his background are lost forever. He was one of a kind.

Sharon and I are saddened to learn of Blackie's passing. He was an amazing man and a loving husband to our high school classmate Alice. He will be missed.
