Goshen Daily News Apr 10,1897,pg 1:
Frank D. Yarian Died This Morning At Home of Daniel Zook in Nappanee.
A dispatch received by The News at 9 o'clock from Nappanee announces the death of Frank D. Yarian, which occurred at an early hour this morning, at the home of ex-County Clerk Danial Zook. The funeral will take place at the home in that town, Monday, at 1:30 p.m. Friends are invited to view the remains from 10 to 12, Monday.
In the death of this young man is well illustrated that forceful apothegm. Death loves a shining mark, since he embodied native brilliancy with rigid integrity and exceptional business capacity. Being of a companionable and sunny disposition, he endeared all to him who were fortunate in his acquaintance, whether socially or commercially, but like to all of his kind, whose ambition lies down to nothing, he died more a martyr to his zeal than a victim to disease. He had been for eight years with The New Printing Company and had worked his way by assiduity and probity to the business management of The News Bookstore, and in whatever estate called he exhibited a proficiency and adaptability seldom met, recreant to nothing, equipped for all. Socially he was a favorite among his companions, having early sought the defence of his church, the Presbyterian, and its supplement the Christian Endeavor, whose examples and precepts he sought always to inculcate by admonition and example on those with whom he came in contact. He was a member of Calanthe lodge No. 41 Knights of Pythias, as also a member of the Order of Red Men.
About a year ago he left the employ of The News and began a course of treatment and being advised by his physician to try a change of climate, he with his sister, Mrs. Daniel Zook, went to Colorado where for a time he seemed to improve but no permanent relief showing itself, he was brought home. He had that flattering and insidious disease consumption and only last Tuesday a letter was received by one of his companions in the city announcing his "speedy recovery" written by himself. He was 37 years of age.
