|Birth: ||Apr. 9, 1867|

And the manly heart of Frank Warren Bathrick ceased to beat at five o'clock the afternoon of July 23d, 1892. His sudden death was a fearful shock to his many friends, who, in the midst of the annual harvest of earth, were brought so swiftly into the presence of the heavenly garnering of this young life by the reaper,
"Who, with his sickle keen.
Cuts the bearded grain with his breath,
And the flowers that grow between."
What brilliant broken plans, what battled high ambitions, what sundering of strong, warm friendships, what bitter rending of sweet household ties. Those who knew him in the sturdy strength of his manhood testify to his superior utilities of soul— his regard for all things pure and holy— his devotion to his parents and his God. Born April 9th, 1867, in the town of Curran, Jackson County, Wis., the deceased had but just completed the golden circle of a quarter of a century. He was the second son of F. S. and Mary Bathrick. Around his bedside father, mother, brother and sister lingered, praying for a ray of hope, dreading the inevitable shallow of the death angel's wing. What could be more tender or a source of sweeter joy than the memory of his parting words to his beloved mother, when he spoke, as if already within the portal, this blessed assurance of his affection: "I love you." The funeral services were very largely attended in the Presbyterian Church at Sechlerville, in which he was baptized.
