Glad to see you add Mark, Nathan. I was thinking about him yesterday, always had great input from the engineering side of things. Especially the 8000 series.

Had lunch with him in Coats MN one day , he was visiting his grandson in hospital in city. 
We must have spent 2 hours talking and sharing things , as he was from Rochester MN area . 
 Funny as not one conversation on politics and we seemed to have more in common than differences .

427435 - Mark Sickman, 73, of Rochester, MN passed away on Friday, September 23, 2016

He was a retired Allis-Chalmers Tractor Engineer.  Whenever I made the trip over to Rochester I'd make it a habit to try and see him.  We threw a lot of ideas around about how things could have been done better.  Can't say as I remember talking politics with him either.  Quite a gentleman!  He's always buy coffee...

Hard to believe he's been gone almost 8 years already.

What is odd is we had a lot of discussions on health care plans for those on Medicare and he used Blue Cross of MN as his primary - then to have problems while on vacation I believe - unless he never discussed underline problems he might have had .
