Default Virgil Litke

Im sure most everyone here has never heard of Virgil, some have. He amassed a huge collection for many decades and housed it at his farm here in Kansas, I never heard of him turning away a visitor who came to look, matter of fact one Sunday my family and I came by unannounced and he and his wife invited us to supper after we toured the collection. All manner of farm and Mennonite history were his subjects in collecting, but he had many early tractors and engines.

Virgil was 92 years old, lived a long and faithful life. I am sure he has gone to reward exceeding anything here on earth.

Phyllis Litke, Virgils' wife passed away 9 days later at age 88. Their son just told me this weekend, after 71 years of marriage they were only separated 9 days. Isnt that something.
