Euclid Lodge No. 65 A.F. & A.M.
Alvin Henry Brown, son of David and Elizabeth Brown, was born April 25th, 1870, at Copenhagen, Ill. He was united in marriage with Mary Kemmerer on September 27, 1893. This union was blessed with one child.
The departed was converted to God and received into the fellowship of the Evangelical Association at Copenhagen in the year 1887, when he was about 17 years old; later he united with the second Evangelical church at Naperville, Ill., and remained a faithful member to his death. His last sickness was of short duration. After a few days of intense suffering, he passed quietly from the shores of time on May 7th, 1908, aged 38 years and 12 days. He leaves to mourn his sudden departure, a sorrowing wife, a little daughter, father and mother, two brothers, three sisters, other more distant relatives and a large number of friends.
Alvin Brown was a devoted husband, a loving father and a kind neighbor. All who have had the privilege of personal acquaintance with the deceased will heartily endorse the statement that any appeal to Mr. Brown for a favor was never made in vain.
His end was peaceful. Those who ministered to him in his last sickness noticed that he was especially cheerful and resigned to his lot. He was reconciled to God and was willing to depart and be with his Saviour. When his end drew near he seemed to catch a glimpse of the Celestial World, and calling his friends to his bedside, he bade them all an affectionate farewell. He fell asleep and while we consign his body to the earth whence it was taken, we hope to meet again in the mansions prepared for all who believe in God and receive His Son as the world's Redeemer.
The funeral services were conducted at the college chapel, Sunday afternoon, Prof. S. E. Umbach and Prof. S. J. Gamertsfelder, officiated.
Mr. Brown was a member of the Knights of the Globe, Royal League, Masonic Lodge and Sons of Veterans.
The Euclid Lodge A.F. & A.M. No. 65 conducted the services at the grave, and six members of the S. of V. acted as ball beaes
