LIFE
The clock of Life is wound but once
and no man has the power
To tell just when the hands will stop
On what day, or what hour

Now is the only time you have,
so live it with a will
Don't wait until tomorrow
The hands may then be still.

Funeral services were held October 29, 1989, from the Wilson-Watson Funeral Home at Mount Ayr, Iowa, conducted by Rev. Phil KINTON. Music was provided by Mrs. Malcom EIGHMY and Mrs. Jim JONES.

Casketbearers were Tom KELLY, Dale MAGEE, Bob BENNETT, David MAULDIN, Charles JEANES and Jerry OVERHOLSER. Burial was in Rose Hill Cemetery at Mount Ayr, Iowa.

Military graveside rites were conducted by Ringgold Post#172, American Legion.
