Services for Oliver Loving, 77, prominent cattleman and banker in Young and Jack Counties for many years in Graham were at the home of his daughter, Mrs. E.S. Graham.
Rev. R.J. LaPrade, Methodist pastor, officiated the services. He was buried at the Oak Grove cemetery beside his wife.
Loving died of a heart attack and was stricken at his ranch near Jermyn, but was not considered in a critical condition when brought to Graham.
He was the son of the late James C. Loving, one of the principal organizers and former secretary of Cattle Raiser's Association. He was the grandson of famed cattle drover, Oliver Loving, who all will remember played a prominent part in the development of this section of Texas.
Loving had been in the cattle, banking and land business in Jack and Young Counties for the greatest portion of his life. He was the owner of the Loving Banking company, one of the few private banks in Texas with branches at Jermyn, Jacksboro and Graham.
Loving is survived by two daughters - Mrs. E.S. "Lois" Graham of Graham and Mrs. Roy Jackson of Corpus Christi.
