From what I have read on the aths forum, Erv Bickford from Maine passed away May 12th. I dont know if he had any Brockways, but I do know he had quite a bit of iron collected over the years. I know he posted here on the message board a few times. Hadnt had the chance to meet the gentleman. My thoughts go out to the Bickford Family.

Erv was a big part of the antique truck hobby. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

I had several conversations with Erv early in the spring after I had sent out the invitation letters.

He has several Brockways and had indicated that his health was poor but probably his family would bring some to Cortland in August.

If you go to the ATHS Road Kill forum, on the topic with his name, there is a link to his obituary in the Portland newspaper. I do not know how to move it over here??

Jeff-now that you mention Erv's handle it came back to me. He posted about his trucks under this topic.

Hey Guys

There is now an excellent 35 min video of Erv posted on the ATHS Road Kill forum.
It was provided by the Bickford family and shows Erv giving a tour of his facility as well as the late 20's Brockway with the Band machine on it.
