ALBERT P. BREWER
Albert P. Brewer, well and favorably known in this county by reason of his long residence in Silver Cliff, and who had recently came up from his home in Canon City to do the plaster work on the Eddy block, was found dead in his room at Mrs. McCormick's on last Wednesday morning, the cause of his sudden demise being attributed to apoplexy.
On the evening before he had complained of being sick and had a physician prescribe for him who told him that he would call later, but Mr. Brewer did not realize his serious condition and said that it would not be necessary, or that he would call him if he needed him. Next morning Mr. Brewer's smiling face was absent from the breakfast table and Mr. Everett went to his room to arouse him and discovered he was dead. This was about 8:30. The coroner was notified, but the cause of death was too plain, and an inquest was not deemed necessary.
The body was taken to Eddy's undertaking parlors and prepared for shipment to Canon City for burial.
The deceased was an upright, honest man and one possessed of extreme loyalty to his country. He was a devoted husband and loving father. He was a veteran of the Civil War and a member of the G. A. R. He was also a member of the Odd Fellows and Masonic fraternities and a number of his lodge brethren accompanied his remains to Canon to attend the funeral. He was sheriff of this county in the early days and discharged the duties of the office with credit to himself. He was a member of the Methodist church.
Besides the widow and family he is survived by a brother—Charles Brewer and three sisters—Mrs. M. E. Ulsh now at Spring Hill, Kas. And Mesdames Bye and Dickson, residents of Knoxville, Iowa.
Deceased's age was 66 years.
His death came as a shock to the community and sore bereavement to his many friends here.
The funeral took place in Canon at 2 p.m. Friday.
