Bethany Republican
Bethany, Missouri
July 16, 1902

OBITUARY - JOHN RAY FRISBY

J. R. FRISBY was born in Edgefield, Village, South Carolina, July 2, 1826 and died at Andover, Missouri, July 8, 1902, aged 76 years, and 6 days. He moved to St. Louis in the early part of his life, and for years he was a pilot on the Mississippi River, where he was known as "Honest John" by everyone.

He was married in St Louis, March 26, 1864, to Rose PRICE, and they resided in that city for several years. To this union 9 children were born, 8 of whom are living. They moved to southern Iowa in the '70s where Mr. FRISBY was engaged in the mercantile business for several years in Davis City, Iowa, and since 1881 in Andover, Mo., where he lived the rest of his life. He is survived by his wife and eight children, William, Richard H., Walter FRISBY, Mrs. Ida BRENIZER, Mrs. Lou HUMESTON, Blanche, Frank and Wyona FRISBY. Three sisters also survive him.

He was taken sick Tuesday, July 1, 1902 and was sick one week, dying July 8. He was patient all through his sickness and even when suffering untold agony he murmured not. He said the Lord had claimed him as His own and he was going home. He was conscious up to the last minute, and said, "No pain." He died a beautiful death, calm and peaceful.

He lived a good, moral life, was honest and full of integrity toward his fellow men and "Uncle Jack" was loved by all who knew him. His name and memory will live forever in the hearts of the people. He was associated with the late William POLAND in the mercantile business at Andover for many years, and both men being popular, they soon built up a large business, which was continued after Mr. POLAND's retirement when Walter FRISBY, son of the deceased, took his place. Deceased was a man of the most tender and generous impulses and no deserving person ever applied to "Uncle Jack" for assistance that he turned away.

The funeral services were held at the home by J. WILLIS at 3 o'clock, July 9, 1902, after which the remains were taken to the little village cemetery [Andover MO] and laid away by loving hands. The funeral was very largely attended: in fact, it is said to have been the largest funeral ever held in Andover. This was a deserved tribute to a man who had been so generally and so highly respected.
