Otto B. Nickel son of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Nickel, was born Nov. 5, 1891 near Clearfield, Iowa and passed away Dec. 12. 1924 in the Methodist Hospital at Des Moines
An infant brother preceded him in death and in 1908 the father. He leaves to mourn his death, his mother, two brothers, two sisters, also nieces and nephews, besides a host of friends.
Early in his boyhood he united with the United Presbyterian church of Clearfield and was a faithful member at the time of his death.
At the time of the war [WWI, 55th Engineers] he was in camp three months and was rejected for overseas service on account of his health, and at this time was a member of the American Legion.
During his last illness he was a patient and brave sufferer, always thinking of his mother's comfort until the last. Otto was a loving brother and a good and kind neighbor.
Funeral services were held in the church Sabbath afternoon conducted by his pastor, Rev. S. Boyd Johnson assisted by the other ministers of the town. A very large crowd assembled to pay the last rites of the living to the dead. "Be ye also ready." Internment was in the Clearfield Cemetery.
