Passing of Gail O (GO) Gish

December 02, 2018 02:36PM avatar
I was just informed of the passing of longtime FOCTS member and work session volunteer Gail O Gish (a.k.a. G.O.) last Friday. Gail was a true craftsman, participating in the rebuild of all three C&TS flangers and the Jordan Spreader OU. He was a real master at woodworking, hand crafting the mortise and tenon joints on end beams and sills of the flangers, and built the Jordan's new operator cab. Gail was well known around the Kansas City area for his 1" and 1-1/2" scale live steam creations. His 1-1/2" scale N.G. Rio grande rolling stock was awesome. A gracious host, Gail held live steam meets every fall for many years at his acreage near Pleasant Hill , MO. I was priviliged to attend one of those meets as well as working with Gail for a number of years as a FOCTS volunteer. I miss his infectious smile. High Greens Gail.
