Alvan Bewick, Crash Victim at Witchita (sic) Buried at Woodbury

Friends, relatives and acquaintances in large numbers gathered at the C. A. Woodley home one mile north of Otranto at 2:30 Tuesday afternoon to pay their last respects to Alvan G. Bewick, 30-year-old son of Mrs. C. A. Woodley who was killed instantly in an auto-train crash at Wichita, Kansas last Saturday, October 12. The Rev W. F. Belling, pastor of the St. Ansgar Methodist church and the Otranto Community church had charge of the services.

Alvan G. Bewick, son of Eliza and Frank Bewick, was born at Meltonville, Iowa, January 16, 1910. He attended the local schools of his community and was graduated from the Otranto high school with the class of 1928.

In 1933 he went to Stillwater, Oklahoma where he attended the State College of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts. Upon his graduation in 1937 he moved to Wichita, Kansas where he was employed by the Production Credit Corporation as assistant to the secretary.

His tragic death last Saturday brought to an end the promise of a brilliant career which might have been full of many achievements. He was 30 years of age at the time of his death, and this passing was a great shock to all who knew him.

He is survived by his mother and step-father, Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Woodley of Otranto, his sister, Mrs. Alice Dockum of Hampton and three brothers, Fred of Dallas, Texas; Howard of Chicago, Illinois, and Lawrence of Stillwater, Oklahoma. Interment was in the Woodbury cemetery just across the state line In Minnesota.
