Mr. Schwope was converted while a young man and united with the Methodist church at Wathena, Kansas. He has been an active member of the Follett Methodist church since living here. Mr. Schwope found his greatest joy in serving the Lord and regularly attended church so long as he could possibly do so.

He had a wonderful bass voice, he liked to sing - loved to attend church, was an official member of the church, and could say with the apostle Paul, "I have fought a good fight, I have kept the faith, and there is henceforth laid up for me a crown of righteousness."

A loving husband, a devoted father, a patient sufferer, a faithful christian has "entered the joy of his Lord" into eternal rest and peace.
