While still in New Market he united with the Church of Christ and has remained faithful to his profession. While in Oklahoma he was six years a member of the Board of Deacons and found great satisfaction in his religion and the services of the church.

A good man has gone from our midst and his going leaves a vacancy among his family and friends that it will not be easy to fill.

Funeral services were held Monday, June 3 at the Church of Christ in New Market. The Rev. Ray Snodgrass of Wichita, Kans., preached the sermon. Interment was in the Memory cemetery.
