Besides the wife he has one son, Charles D. at home, one daughter, Mrs. Vernie Jenkins, a granddaughter, Lorene Jenkins, a little nephew, Leroy Bacon to whom he had been a father, two brothers, Huey of Golden Gate, Ill and Turner of Wichita Ks a number of nieces and nephews and friends to mourn with those bereft, breathing a prayer for their comfort may God in his love and mercy administer the balm for aching hearts which the world cannot. Funeral services were held at the home on Monday afternoon in charge of Rev. J.B. Johnson. Burial in Maple Ridge Cemetery.
