THE DEATH OF WILLIAM H. DICKS
William H. Dicks died at his home at Kirkpatrick Saturday afternoon at 5:30 o’clock. He had been in failing health since last summer and death was due to a second stroke of paralysis. He was born on November 2, 1854, in Laporte county, being the son of Mr. and Mrs. Elizabeth J. Dicks. His mother still survives at her home in Chicago. He was graduated from the Cincinnati law school in 1875, and afterward engaged in the practice of law, and later entered the real estate business at Cincinnati. He was a republican in politics, and in 1881 he was elected to the Ohio state legislature. He gave up his law practice after his marriage to Miss Alice Kirkpatrick, daughter of Mr and Mrs. James Kirkpatrick, and devoted his interest to farming. Their marriage occurred in 1883. They have resided at Kirkpatrick since that time, excepting for two years spent in Lafayette, when they resided in the home formerly owned by Mrs. T. Arthur Stuart on Ferry street. Besides the widow one son, Bodley K. Dicks, survives. He also leaves two brothers; Benjamin Dicks, of Chicago, and Dr. James Dicks, of Nashville, Tenn. Mr. Dicks stood high in Masonic circles. He was a member of the Scottish Rite, at Cincinnati, of the Shriners, at Indianapolis, and was also a Knight Templar. He was a man of splendid character and was noted for his hospitality. The funeral will be held this morning at 10 o’clock from the Kirkpatrick Methodist church, and the interment will be at the Stockwell cemetery.
