He was the second of four children, all of whom have preceded him in death except a sister, Mrs. Ida REAGAN of Davenport.

As a child he moved to the Salem community, where he grew to manhood. He spent his entire life farming in and around this vicinity and devoted his life to his family.

He was the father of two children: a son, Glen of Lamoni, and a daughter, Hazel WOOLLUMS of La Mesa, Calif.

Funeral services were held Sept. 15, from the Methodist church in Kellerton, conducted by Rev. Richard T. HOHL. Mr. and Mrs. Russell HUGHES sang, accompanied by Mrs. Jamie MEADOWS. Casket bearers were Al REYNOLDS, Wert MUNYON, Charlie MILLER, Wayne O'DELL, Richard O'DELL and Duane JOHNSON. Interment was in Maple Row cemetery at Kellerton.
