With great sympathy I pass along the information that long time hobbyist and friend Mike Trotnic of Parsons KS died in a car accident yesterday.

Mike was a true pioneer in our hobby and a mainstay at several show along with being a wealth of information. He will be missed.

Very sorry to hear...I stopped and visited with him on several trips on my way back to Hershey. He was an Iowa Gas regular for many years also. RIP

Sorry to hear about Mike. He was a very nice guy. I bought a 36B from him, that I still have, several years ago. He also did an Episode of American Pickers. I will miss seeing him and his red Dodge with the crane at Iowa Gas. R.I.P.
