John E. Pentico, son of Simon and Matilda Pentico, was born May 9, 1867, in Iowa and passed from this life October 12, 1943, at Goodland, at the age of 76 years, five months and three days.

He was united in marriage to Minnie Roberts August 14, 1893, at Concordia, and to this union 14 children were born.

Music was furnished by Mrs. Lester Pentico and Mrs. Henry Lisher, with Mrs. Gresser accompanying. The pallbearers were J. A.
