That’s Matty Preston, not Pearson. His older brother Sammy Preston, retired E79, passed away some years ago. Both fine gentlemen and long time friends. Heart heavy. RIP.

(Did the Dept. Order say “Pearson”? Either way thanks for posting. A group of friends were wondering about the arrangements.)

Recently dug up my pic of Artie Connelly R2 RIP with Chief Skillings, fire was probably late 1970s around Ralph & Prospect.

I see the Rapid Water logo below 234, does anyone know what the logo above the number is?
