OAK CITY PIONEER DIES IN LYNNDYL

Charley Roper, one of Oak City's pioneers, died Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. in Lynndyl, after an illness of three days. Mr. Roper was 86 years old and was one of the pioneers of this country. He was born in Deseret October 1, 1856, near the old fort. He had lived in Oak City since 1868. Mr. Roper was in business with a saw mill as a young man and was also a skilled carpenter and helped with much of the building in Oak City and helped build the first school house. In early years, he took care of the telephone service for this side of the county and helped build the lines on this side and was the first to handle the work here. He also farmed successfully for many years at Fool Creek and provided well for his family through several periods of depression and endeavored at all times to live up to his creed and keep out of debt. Mr. Roper is survived by his wife, Ann J. Dutson Roper, who is 81 and they have been happily married for 54 years. He is also survived by two sons, Leland Roper of Oak City and Merlin Roper of Provo; and three daughters, Mrs. Lydia Smith of Beaver, Mrs. Effie Sheriff and Mrs. Nell Willkie of Lynndyl. There are grandchildren and one great-grandchild. His brother, A.H. Roper, still lives at Oak City and is the only member of the family left. Funeral services will be conducted by Bishop Willis Dutson in the Oak City chapel on Sunday afternoon and interment will be in the Oak City cemetery. Friends may call at the home of a son, Leland Roper, in Oak City, Sunday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
