Just got home from the funeral home to pay my respects to a long time Studebaker owner , Jake Schmidt, who passed away this week , he has owned a Studebaker since 1956 when he bought a new '56 Hawk . His last one which he still owned at his death is a '63 GT Hawk . Some of the older Ontario chapter members may remember Jake but in the last few years his health has failed and I know he let his memberships laps . His oldest son told me today that he intends to keep his dads car so I just may get him started in the SDC

I send out my kindest thoughts, and also hopes that the son can find some solice, possibly even in the Stude hobby, after having lost his father...

Sorry for the loss.

Hope when the time is right, the son will participate and feel welcomed.
I recall an Arizona gentleman who recently lost his father as well, took ownership of his fathers beloved white 57-59 Transtar.
