The burial took place Thursday morning at Walnut Grove Cemetery, the services being conducted by Rev. H.E. Gabby.

The deceased leaves a wife and six children, three boys and three girls, one of whom is married. He was a man highly respected by all who knew him.

Of unquestionable character, frank disposition, the qualities that make a true man were in him ever manifest. He was loving and kind in his relations to family and just and honorable in his dealings with men.
