"Alfred Burdet, son of Rev. Jay W. and Hannah Larkin Crofoot, was born in Shanghai, China, Nov. 20, 1899, while his parents were missionaries there, and died unexpectedly at Bethesda Hospital, North Hornell, N.Y., Nov. 13, 1955.

"He was married to Leah Clerke of Spring Valley, N.Y., a classmate at Alfred University, April 21, 1924, by Rev. H. Eugene Davis. Three daughters were born to this union: Patricia (Mrs. Robert Turnbull), Poughkeepsie, N.Y.; Constance (Mrs. John Quirk), Haddonfield, N.J.; and Leah Camille, Alfred, N.Y.

"Mr. Crofoot's first church membership was in the Shanghai Church where he was baptized by Rev. D. H. Davis. He joined the First Seventh Day Baptist Church of Alfred in 1939, by letter from the Plainfield, N.J. Church.

"Mr. Crofoot was appointed Executive Secretary of the Seventh Day Baptist General Conference in April, 1953. A proof of his effective and indispensable service has been found as the Commission of General Conference has tried to apportion the work of his office to several individuals until the Commission's midyear meeting.

"There survive, besides his widow and daughters, his father of Daytona Beach, Fla.; a sister, Anna (Mrs. L. Harrison North), Plainfield, N.J.; and five grandchildren.

"Memorial services were conducted from the First Alfred Church, Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 15, by his pastor, Rev. Hurley S. Warren. During the service the School of Theology Sextet sang. Committal services, following cremation, will be held at a later date. - H.S.W."
