Death was due to diabetes and high blood pressure. He had been ill since 1921. That year he went to Mayo Brothers for treatment: but by dieting he had been able to look after his business until about ten days before his death.
Mr. Gallemore was born in Henderson county, January 5, 1874, and had been a resident of Big Spring for the past twenty-five years. He was a big, wholesouled gentleman, one who readily won friends and kept them. He has taken an active part in the growth and development of our city and has always been a worth while citizen. He was big hearted and jovial and tried to make life brighter for those with whom he came in contact. He never lost an opportunity to aid those in need or distress, and his good deads will live after him. Many hearts are saddened by the death of one
who was highly esteemed.

Adolphus Gallemore who attends the State Medical College at Galveston did not arrive until after the death of his father, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Ramsay and two children of this county were among the other relatives here to attend the funeral.
The closing of every business house in the city during the hour the funeral services were being conducted, the beautiful floral offerings and the large concourse of friends attending the last sad rites for a departed friend all attest to the deed esteem in which Mr. Gallemore was held.
