We are sad to report the loss of a former Chapter member, Harry Joseph Mosher. He died May 4, 2012 at his home in Hyrum, Utah after an extended illness. He was born on April 24, 1936. He received an honorable discharge from the U.S. Army in 1963 and went on to work for Union Pacific Railroad for 43 years. He was an active member of our chapter. But his love of vintage cars will be his legacy. He was known for driving around town in his 1947 red Cadillac convertible. It was Harry’s idea that Ogden should have an antique car show in conjunction with Ogden’s Pioneer Day Celebration. The car show is traditionally held the weekend prior to the July 24th festivities. The first show was held in 1970 and continues to this day.” Harry founded the Golden Spike Empire Vintage Car Club and belonged to the Beehive A’s Car Club. He also initiated the origination of vanity license plates in Utah and was a co-coiner of the official designation of ‘Golden Spike Empire’.

The 223 Tender was
rolled out of the restoration shop for a shakedown trial to check out any difficulties for when we have to bring it out for painting.
