Residents of Au Sable Forks, New York were shocked early Thursday afternoon, March 31, 1938, when the news spread through the village that Freeman Kayea, a lifelong and highly respected resident of the village had dropped dead as he was leaving the pulp mill of the J. & J. Rogers Company at noon as he started for his home in the Rome section for his noonday meal.

Mr. Kayea, who had been an employee of the Rogers Company for forty or more years, had during the past few years developed a weakness of the heart, but, although his sons had urged him to retire from steady work at the mill, his affliction did not keep him from his labors, and he continued his actvities until stricken as he stepped out of the mill.

The respect in which he was held was attested to in the number who attended his funeral on Saturday morning, April 2, 1938, the Holy Name church being almost completely filled with sorrowing friends who gathered to assist at the requiem high mass celebrated by Rev. Father Kelly. The Rogers Company, as a tribute to the memory of a most faithful employe, shut down, as far as possible, the operations of their pulp mill in order that employees might attend the funeral.

Mr. Kayea was survived by his widow, the former Amy Votraw, four sons, Raymond, Henry, John and Desmond Kayea, two daughters, Mrs. Evelyn Snye and Mrs. Florence Rushia, all of this village; also one sister, Mrs. Moses Murcray, five grandchildren, Frederick and Ronald Kayea and Junior Rushia, Mary Louise Kayea and Henrietta Snye.
