F. Guy Bachelor

Franklin Guy Bachelor was born August 19, 1916 at Cuba, Kan. He was the third son of Mr. and Mrs. J.G. Bachelor.

Guy attended the Cuba schools until he went with his parents to Ogden, Utah, in October, 1928 where they moved on account of sickness. In March 1929 the family moved to Twin Falls, Idaho. Here Guy spent practically every minute while not attending school, in the great outdoors where he roamed along the rugged cliffs of the Snake river canyon with his gun, hunting rabbits, wild chickens and the migratory duck. Here too, Guy found his Paradise for the clear cool lakes afford excellent attractions in the way of fishing and swiming (sic).

In 1930, in the month of January, Guy, in company with his parents and brothers came back to Kansas.

Though his days were not long in Belleville it was a happy time he spent here. Friends were made quickly, among boys and girls, because of his cheery manner and happy smile. His boon companions were the boys who loved to live out of doors in old caves and cabins made by their own eager hands.

Guy was a member of the Junior high school, dearly loved by his teachers and classmates. He was a faithful attendant of the Methodist Sunday school.

He was fatally injured late Saturday afternoon when the car in which he and several other boy friends were riding overturned northeast of here. Death came Sunday morning at 10:30 at the local hospital.

Besides the members of the immediate family, Mr. and Mrs. J.G. Bachelor, Benton, Fred, Billy, and Florence, Guy leaves to mourn his departure many relatives and a host of dearly loved friends.

The funeral services were held at the Methodist church (sic) Tuesday afternoon, May 5 and interment was made in the Belleville cemetery (sic). The Rev. W.A. Reese was in charge of the services.
