At the age of 16 years he became a volunteer fireman and was appointed as a regular fireman May 14, 1890 and as captain of No. 2 station on December 31, 1907. He was at all times recognized as faithful and efficient in the performance of his duties and was held in high regard by his associates in the city service as well as by all who knew him. He is survived by his wife and six children, two sons, William, of Bellville, and George, of this city, and four daughters, Mrs. Phillip Kipp, Mrs. George Birmelin, Mrs. Samuel Schwier and Mrs. Beach Gatton, all of this city. Funeral services will be conducted at the home Friday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock by the Rev. M.L. Jenney, Pastor of the First Christian Church. Burial will be in the Mansfield Cemetery.
