Obituary: The Atlanta Constituton, Atlanta, Georgia, April 16, 1913. W. Brack Westberry, a prominent citizen of Wayne County, committed suicide at his home near here today. Telling his family that he was going to feed his horses, Westberry went to the horse lot, taking his razor and strop with him. After whetting the blade, he cut a deep gash on the right side of his throat. When discovered a few minutes later by his son, Hugh Westberry, he was dead. The strop was hanging on a barn wall near by. Westberry, who was county road superintendant had been in bad health for some time and brooded over this until his mind became affected, causing him to kill himself. His tombstone reads:"Faith points to hope above the skies where virtuous friendship never dies."
