Memories & Condolence

    I accidentally looked on the funeral home obituaries for someone else and saw Ross Fackler name. Ross , me, and other farm boys from high school used to ride cushman scooters around in a small group, back in the day. Was close to Ross and other FFA boys back then. In the mid 60’s when there were a number of fast cars, Ross and me ended up buying 1965 Pontiac GTO’s. Never planned it between us, it just happened. His was yellow and mine was turquoise. A lot of racing back then. Ross and I were in partnership , for a while, raising and selling Siberian Huskies to pet stores and individuals.

    Back in 1970, I bought a limited production AAR Cuda, which was a 340 cu. in. 3-2barrell engine , fiberglass black hood and other items, made for trans am racing. After having the car for many years, I decided to sell it. Ross ended up buying it and raced it in the 1/4 mile tracks for a number of years. After a number of years of owning the car, he decided to sell it…….to me.
    Yes, I bought the car back and ended up years later selling it to a mopar car collector.

    He moved out west , later on, and I lost track of him.

    Many memories, Prayer for the Family,
    Tom Cooke

    Just saw this on Ross as well. Yes we had a real farm boy group growing up. We had those Sunday afternoon of football in the fall, basketball in one of the group barn in the winter and softball in the summer when we were not farming..
    At Ross place they had a nice swimming pond for those hot days as well. It was a great time with Ron, Tom and Fred Cooke, the Lynches, myself and my two brothers, the Mackes, plus there were the Jones girls that joined us as well. It was a great time but a hard time with farming,
    Love the memories, miss you all.
