This fellow had been sick for a few years. Passed away last week. He did road work and snow removal, and used heavy equipment most of his life. I did not know him, but knew of him. He was quite a character, from what heard over the years.
Any way, check out the casket carrier. Only in PEI.

A friend ran a dozer all his life.  When he finally retired for health reasons, his nephew for whom he worked had a recliner built like a dozer seat.  He never ran a hydraulic dozer, only the cable operated ones.

That was my FIL's request but he didn't put it in writing so he didn't get it his way.

There was a old farmer around here that was a IH collector, when he passed away his casket was hauled on a hay trailer pulled by one of his restored Internationals and then was followed by the rest of his restored IH's (over 30)
