Services Held For Long-Time Bandon Barber

Van Halliday Spiller, 65, a long-time Bandon barber, died unexpectedly Friday evening in Bandon.

Funeral services were held Tuesday in the Bandon Chapel, with the Rev. J. C. Arnett, pastor of the officiating, interment followed in the IOOF cemetery.

A member of the Assembly of God Church, Mr. Spiller moved to Bandon in January of 1928 from Portland after graduating from barber collage. He was self-employed as a barber in this community for over 40 years, with his shop located across the street from the post office.

Mr. Spiller was born June 27, 1902, in Caruthersville, MO.

Survivors include his widow, Helen A., Bandon; sister, Mrs. Jessie Tistadt, McMinnville; nephew, Col. Edward Tistadt, U.S. Army in Germany, and Charles Tistadt, West Fir,Oregon; niece, Mrs. Katherine Wallace, Portland.

Van's philosophy of life, as related by his widow, was "As life rolls along, it seems the older we get the more rapidly the years race by. Makes one realize our earthly existence is short, very short. We're smart if we pause long enough to enjoy the good things of life as we speed through it. Grant-land Rice, the all-time great sports writer, buttoned it up in a neat package when he said, ‘you are here only a short while. Don't hurry. Don't worry. And don't forget to smell the flowers'."

Thanks to Judy Caswell, for the copy of the obituary.
