Default Lost a good man

On Friday, April 22nd, Charlie Allen passed away. He had not been feeling
well for some time. He enjoyed engines, especially small ones. He also
posted on Harry's from time to time. He was in the hobby for many years, lived in Michigan, and had many, many friends. Our sympathy goes out to
his wife, Marilyn and family. We'll sure miss him.

Im very sorry to hear that. I knew Charlie for about 2 years and emailed him back and forth about Briggs engines and early mowers. He was a great guy, I wish I had the chance to meet him. I had picked up a 1931 Moto-Mower Jr and the wooden handle was rotted away. I had a friend ready to turn me a new one if I could provide him with an original as a pattern. Charlie was nice enough to send one on loan off his mower via priority mail. The result is that I now have a beautiful original style handle thanks to him, a person he didnt know from Adam but put his trust in the fact his handle would be returned. Thats what makes this hobby so damned great, people like him. I will surely miss him. I know from what he said over time he was going through some real tough health problems that looked like he beat, only to show up again later. R.I.P Charlie.
