Proverbially kind and indulgent he was a model hus-band and an honored father. He was ready to die. He had made ample preparations long before his disease for this hour. His widow survives him and for her ex-traordinary patience and endurance in the long vigils at the bedsides of her husband and son, has the sym-pathy of all. His funeral took place March 18, from the M.E. Church, and was attended by a very large num-ber of sympathizing friends. The sermon was preached by the Pastor of the Church from Zachariah 14:7 At Evening Time it Shall be Light. The Odd Fellows then took charge and conducted their services very impressively and laid the worn out body of our brother, beside his little children, at Hill Dale Cemetery to await the resurrection of the just.2
