Beside his wife and children he leaves to mourn his going other near relatives and many friends.
He was a loving husband and a kind father, a good neighbor and friend. During his last few years his affliction was of such nature that he was bedfast and suffered much. All was done for his comfort that loving hands could do. Our loss is his gain.
