He leaves to mourn his departure, besides, Mrs. Radcliff, two nieces and three nephews, together with a host of friends.
Funeral services were held Thursday afternoon at the home of Mrs. Emmett Radcliff, the services being conducted by Rev. S.C. Eshelman of Centerville. The body was laid to rest in the Pleasant Valley Cemetery to await the general resurrection.
