Funeral services for Alonzo E. Luce, 54, were held from the Webster Funeral Home Friday afternoon conducted by the Rev. F. C. McCallon. He died at the Releif Hospital here Wednesday after nearly 20 years of failing health.

About 8 years ago he united with the Church of Christ and has held his membership in the local church since that time. He was a member of the I.O.O.F. lodge. He was very fond of music and reading and was a good father and cheerful pleasant neighbor.

Besides his two daughters he leaves to mourn his departure two sisters, Carrie Hammer of Eldorado, Kansas, Hulda Castor of Murray; three brothers, Alfonzo of Murray, Eugene of Arnold, Nebr., and George W. of Murray, and eight grandchildren.
