Alva Cecil Addy, 43, for eleven years a member of the Jimison Barber Shop staff in Spur, and a veteran of the World War, passed away suddenly at his home here Friday evening, 6:30 p.m. attending physician attributing death to a heart attack.
Addy had worked at his regular duties at the barber shop all day Friday, death occurring soon after his arrival home.

Cecil Addy was born on August 23, 1896 in Como, Hopkins County, Texas and made his home at that place until the U.S. entered the World War. He was called to the colors and went over-seas, spending 18 months in France. After the war he returned to Dallas, Texas where he served on the Dallas Police force two years. Resigning his place in Dallas, Addy went to Fort Worth to resume barber work.

On February 28, 1925, Addy was married to Miss Nellie Meeks, the ceremony taking place in Ft. Worth. Two children are of this union.

In May of 1928, Mr. and Mrs. Addy came to Spur and immediately he joined the Jimison shop. He has continued in that place since. He has made a host of friends in this area with his congenial, friendly mannerisms, and was a model of courtesy and moral.

Three years ago Addy was troubled seriously by heart attack, but recovered sufficiently to carry on his duties.

Funeral services were conducted at the First Christian Church of Spur Sunday morning, 10 a.m. with Rev. Brown officiating.

Pallbearers were W. F. McGlathery, Walter Jimison, J.D. Hopkins, M.H. Brannen, Andy Hurst and O.C. Arthur.

Flower bearers were June and Ouida Lisenby, Marian Hale, Sammie McGee, Betty Lynn Brown and Mrs. Cecil Ayers.

Survivors are the widow and two children, Billie, 13 and Jo Nell, 7, his father, E.E. Addy of Como; three brothers, Drushal, and Dana Addy, Como, and Hob of Mineola; three sisters, Mrs. Jewel Pounds, Mrs. Grace Carroll, and Mrs. Dall Russell, Como. One brother, Dana was unable to attend the funeral.

Interment was made in the Spur cemetery with Ward Funeral Home in charge.
