The Clearfield community was shocked and saddened to hear of the death of Floyd Huffman. He was found hanging in the barn some 1 miles east of his home. Hed gone to do his chores and as he did not answer when his wife called him, she went to his father, and he was the one who found him a short time later.

Coroner DeLong of Tingley was called and pronounced it a case of suicide. Mr. Huffman had been in ill health for some time.

Obituary

Floyde Elvador Huffman, son of Hubert and Lea (sic, Herbert T. and Lena D. (Beamer)) Huffman, was born July 22, 1895, south of Clearfield, Iowa, and died October 22, 1931, at his home east of Clearfield, aged 36 years, 3 months.

He spent his childhood days and grew to manhood in the vicinity of Clearfield, where he received his education. On September 9th, 1914, he was united in marriage to Mabel L. Page. To this union was born one daughter, Cleona Rovena. During their married life they have always resided within the immediate territory of Clearfield.

In young manhood he gave his heart to God, and united with the Christian Church and was an adherent to this faith until his death.

His idea of life was one of right living and strict compliance with the demands and responsibilities of a man in his duties to his home, community and country. In his various associations with others his cheerful disposition won him many friends. His smiles and pleasant words will always be remembered by those with whom he came in contact. He was ever a kind and thoughtful son, husband and father. His home was his pride and to do the most for its welfare and happiness was his one thought.

To mourn his death are his wife and daughter, his parents, two brothers, Merle L. and Zed H. Huffman, two sisters, Bernice L. and Edith M. Huffman, and many friends who mourn the going of a good neighbor, loyal citizen and true friend.

Funeral services were held in the Christian Church at 2:00 o'clock Saturday afternoon, conducted by Rev. P. L. Browns, assisted by Rev. H. B. Hutchman and Rev. John C. Turner. Interment was made in Clearfield cemetery.
