He was a devoted husband and father, unsparing and tireless in his services for his loved ones, many of his friends and for his community. Through his illness he never complained, everything was always well with him. His home was like a house by the side of the road where strangers were always welcome. The Latch strings were always out. He will be greatly missed by all that knew him. A precious one from us has passed, A voice we loved is stilled. A place is vacant in our home, Which never can be filled. We often sit and think of him. When we are all alone. For memory is the only thing, That grief can call it's own. God in his wisdom has recalled, The flower he has given, And though his body slumbers here, His-sole is safe in heaven. Funeral services were held at the M. E. church at Dwight, Friday afternoon with the pastor Rev. John F. Paine and Rev. David Bechtel of the Presbyterian church officiating. Burial was made in the Dwight cemetery, the Masons having charge of the services at the grave.
