All of those living reside near the home place. He was converted in their home and united with the Mennonite Church and the Olive congregation in 1912, which faith he held until death.

He leaves to mourn his departure his stricken companion, 7 children, 7 grandchildren, 2 brothers, 4 sisters, and many other relatives and friends. Funeral services held at the Olive church, conducted by C. A. Shank and D. A. Yoder. Text, Job 19:25.
"Father, thou hast left us lonely,
Sorrow fills our hearts today;
But beyond this vale of sorrow
Tears will all be wiped away."He had been a member of the Mennonite Church and Olive congregation since 1912.
