The News Star newspaper has an obituary for Mr. Apgar in the November 24, 1913 issue.
Death of Mr. Chas. E. Apgar.
Saturday evening at 8:15 at his residence on Calypso street, Mr. Charles E. Apgar breathed his last, tenderly watched over by his bereaved wife and daughtrs [sic].
Mr. Apgar was a consistent member of the Baptist Church. He was born in New Jersey Oct. 20, 1854, and was married September 24, 1881. He leaves to mourn his death the heart-broken wife, two daughters, Misses Maide and Cassel Apgar: two sons, Messrs. Wm. and Loyd Apgar of Hutchinson, Kansas.
Mr. Apgar had been in failing health for two years, yet he conscientiously attended to his business interest, only giving up when forced to. Mr. Apgar as of a retiring disposition, but of strong religious convictions. He united with the Baptist church when quite young and has always faithfully served the cause of Christ.
The funeral services were held today at 12:30 at the first Baptist church, Rev. F.H. Farrington officiating, paying a sweet tribute to the Christian life, whose character has been an example to the family.
During the service, "One Sweetly Solemn Thought" was sung as a solo by Mr. Harry Prophit, the choir singing the beautiful old songs, "Nearer My God to Thee," and "Rock of Ages."
The interment was made in the Hasley cemetery, that peaceful quiet spot, by request of Mr. Apgar, who longed for his last sleep to be on the beautiful hill slope, watched over by the stars of night and sheltered by the branching trees.
Messrs. Wm and Loyd Apgar were able to reach Monroe in time for the funeral.
The pall bearers were Mr. Apgar's co-workers in the post office, with whom he had served for three years or more: Messrs. Carter, Renaud, Haynes, O'Kelly, Bynum, Shows.
