Funeral services were held at his home in Washington township Wednesday, April 30 at 1:30.Interment in Farmer cemetery.
He leaves to mourn his departure his wife, two sons, two grandchildren, father, mother, one brother and three sisters, besides a host of relatives and friends.
An acquaintance of forty years and true friendship existing through all that time prompted me to write this in behalf of one who will be sadly missed by each and everyone who knew him. He seemed near as a brother to me, and while life _mains can never be forgotten.I hope and trust he has entered into eternal rest and joy increasing in a better Home than earth can offer.May God be with and strengthen each and all who mourn for him is the wish and prayer of his friend.
