William C. BRIGHT, 63, well known lumber buyer, of Akron, succumbed at his home in that city, Saturday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. Mr. Bright suffered a stroke of paralysis three weeks ago and resultant complications brought about his demise. The Akron citizen, however, had been in ill health since 1929, in which year he suffered a hip fracture. The deceased had a wide acquaintance of friends throughout the entire county. Mr. Bright, who was the son of John and Minerva BRIGHT was born on a farm east of Akron, on August 5th, 1872. He had been a resident of Henry Township for practically all of his life. On August 22, 1901, he was united in marriage to Melissa E. HOFFMAN, the wedlock ceremony being pronounced at Carrington, North Dakota. Mr. Bright was well known throughout this section of the state through his activities in the lumber and timber buying business. He also owned several saw mills. The deceased was a member of the Lincoln Methodist Protestant church. The survivors are the widow; two sons, Keith [BRIGHT], of Akron, and Eugene [BRIGHT], of Rochester; his mother, Mrs. Minerva BRIGHT; and a sister, Miss Ethel BRIGHT, also of Akron. Funeral services will be held at the Akron Methodist church, Tuesday afternoon at two o'clock. The Rev. Roy HELMS, of Frankfort, will officiate. Burial will be made in the Akron I.O.O.F. cemetery.
