He leaves his aged Mother and two grandchildren, and a host of relatives and friends to mourn his departure.
We have lost our darling father,
He has bid us all adieu;
He has gone to live in Heaven,
And his person is lost to veiw.

Weep not, for his trials are over;
Weep not, that his race is run.
God grant we may rest as calmly
When our work, like his, is done.

Peaceful be his silent slumber,
Peaceful in thy grave so low,
Thou no more will join our number,
Thou no more our sorrows know.

Funeral services were held at the Christian Church at Tennyson April 14 1928. Rev. Cloah Fisher officiated. Burial in the Clark Cemetery.
