Alfred J. Gunn Dies After Long Illiness
Alfred J. Gunn, 63, resident of this community for the greater part of his life, died Sunday morning of chronic Bright's Disease following an illness lasting more than a month. His health has been poor for several years and his life had been despaired of for more than two weeks before he finally passed away after much suffering.
Funeral services for Mr. Gunn were held Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock in the West Ward Chapel with Bishop H.L. Adams of that ward presiding. The services commenced with the choir under the direction of Rex C. Ward and with Mrs. Glenna M. Ward at the piano singing "My Father Knows". The opening prayer was offered by David Matheson following which the choir sang "Beautiful Isle of Somewhere" as a request number. Speakers were M.M. Decker and George Stevens with opeining and closing remarks by Bishop H.L. Adams. These speakers all told of their life long association with the deceased and told of his many worthy qualities. Other numbers were a vocal solo, "The End of a Perfect Day" by Rex C. Ward, a violin solo by Silas Topham, both accompanied by Mrs. Ward, and sentiments and a reading by Barbara M. Adams. The sentiments were written by W.L. Adams who was to have read them but he was unable to attend the services on account of illness. The reading was "Crossing the Bar" and was read by Mrs. Adams at the request of the deceased wife. The concluding number by the choir was "Sometime We'll Understand" and Joseph E. Ward offered the closing prayer. At the cemetery the grave was dedicated by Bishop H.L. Adams.
Pallbearers were six nephews of the deceased, Delos and Alma Hyatt, Clifford and Alma Stubbs, Chas. F. Bentley and Roy Benson. The many beautiful flowers were in charge of Mrs. Clifford Stubbs assisted by a number of small girls, friends and relatives of the family.
