It is with great sorrow that we morn the lost of one of our charter members, Mr. Marvin D. Tieken, Jr. He just celebrated his 62nd birthday when he passed from this world on October 13, 2008. He is survived by his sister and many friends.

Mr. Tieken retired from the Southern Pacific Railroad, and then was called back to work for the Union Pacific Railroad after the merger. Later, he was employed by Trans-Texas Rail Shops.
