Born January 13, 1898 in the little town of Columbia, Arizona, also in the Castle Hot Springs country and which has long since passed out of existence. Mr. Champie spent practically his entire nature life in the cattle business in the country of his birth. In his younger days he took part in rodeos and spent some time in Hollywood as a participant in the filming of western movies.

Like other members of the widely known Champie family, he went to school at the little Champie School House.

He is survived by his wife Jane R., a daughter, Mrs. Beth Leeds of Glendale, Ariz., and two step-daughters, Mrs. Edward Flood of Phoenix, and Mrs. Charles Tewksbury of Prescott.

A brother, Lawton Champie of Castle Hot Springs also survives and there are four surviving sisters, Mrs. Bessie Morgan, Mrs. Fred Cordes and Mrs. Tommy Walker, all of Glendale, Ariz., and Mrs. Emma Stivers of Long Beach, Calif. Seven grandchildren also survive.
