Kind friends ministered to his needs until his son, Olen, came and took him to his home near Mayetta, but death claimed him in a few hours. He leaves to mourn his departure his five children, and five grandchildren besides his brother, Wilbur Elliott, of the old home, and one aunt Mrs. Delia Higgins of Kansas City, Kans. Funeral services were conducted by his friend, M. G. Hamm, from the funeral home at Holton. Friends from Mayetta furnished beautiful and appropriate music and acted as p all bearers for their old friend.Many floral tributes told of the love and esteem for him. He rests in peace and his works will follow him
