I am sorry to report our good friend and Massey Collector (along with many other colors) passed away on February 1, 2021 after a valiant long lasting fight with cancer. Sean always had a smile on his face and eager to talk tractors, bluegrass or beef cattle! I last saw him at the Dale Lawrene Auction in late in 2020. He looked remarkably well and never had a discouraging word! He was upbeat to the very end. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.
The following is his obitruary.
