Williamsville Depot Supporter - Locomotive Engineer - 2021

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Larry Brenton who passes away on July 26, 2021. Larry was the Mayor of the Village of Williamsville and was extremely supportive of the Society's effort to purchase, save and preserve the Williamsville Lehigh Valley Depot in 1989. Larry's legacy continues today as he was instrumental in finding and hiring the company currently working on the restoration work on the locomotive at the Williamsville Depot. His enthusiasm and support of the depot will be sorely missed.
