FUNERAL SERVICES HELD FOR YOUTH WHO DIED IN STORM

Funeral services were held in Eureka on Sunday afternoon, Dec. 7, at 2 p.m. for Philemon Eva, Jr., who was found frozen to death on Thursday morning at the rock crusher near Clear Lake. Rev. William Frairy conducted the services in the Methodist church and burial was in the Eureka cemetery. The young man was born in Eureka on Dec. 27, 1924, a son of Philemon and Rose Gardner Eva. He had lived in Eureka all his life, and attended the Tintic High School. He is survived by his father, Philemon Eva, Sr., and five brothers and sisters, Dorothy, Jimmy, Joe and Albert Eva and Mrs. Margaret Hyde all of Eureka. His mother died last summer. The boy, known here as Bill Eva, had been in Delta on Tuesday and Wednesday preceding his death. He seemed to be in poor health which may be accounted for by the fact that he had been recently released from a Salt Lake City hospital. He was looking for work here and it was reported that he had started out in the South Tract to find a job as chore boy on a farm, when he got lost and went on to Clear Lake.
