Bob Learned succumbed to complications from a brain tumor on January 17, 1998 at the age of 67. A graduate of Colorado School of Mines, Bob worked as a manufacturing engineer in the electronics industry until his retirement in 1987. Bob was introduced to EDGE&TA Branch 3 in 1985 by the late branch 3 member, Hal Low, and had been an active participant in the club ever since. In addition to all of the fine restoration work he did on his Briggs & Stratton collection, he served on the Branch 3 Board of Directors, handled our membership lists and label printing needs, and at the National level he was the web master for EDGE&TA’s web page on the internet. Oftentimes he would take digital pictures at a show and have them available for viewing on the EDGE&TA’S web page before most folks got home from the show. He also had his own home page which was one of the better examples to be seen. Bob was a quiet man, but his actions spoke louder than his words. He was alway available to help fellow collectors with their engine problem…..He will be missed.
