ALBERT WYCKOFF RITES APRIL 22

Funeral services for Albert WYCKOFF, 73, of St. Louis, a native of Bedford, were held April 22 at the Shum-Novinger Funeral Home in Bedford, conducted by Rev. J. Milton KINNEY Mr. Wyckoff died at his home in St. Louis April 18. Interment was at Bedford cemetery.

Albert WYCKOFF was born October 23, 1893, the son of the late John W[esley] WYCOKFF and Emma (CALKINS) WYCOKFF and grandson of the late James CALKINS.

Mr. WYCKOFF grew to manhood in the Bedford area and in Sheridan, Mo.

In 1910, he married Golda WHITE at the old courthouse of Maryville, Mo. At the time of his passing [he] had spent 56 happy years with his bride.

During the latter part of World War I he was employed by a livery company in Kansas City, Mo., traveling the Southwest as a horse buyer and seller under government contract. He spent several years in Texas and Oklahoma and in later years enjoyed telling of his many interesting experiences in the Southwest during the last days of the frontier West.

During the early twenties he returned to this area to work for Swift & Co. in St. Joseph, Mo., where he had previously worked as a messenger. He later transferred to the Swift owned St. Louis Independent Packing Co., where he stayed until his retirement in 1958.

He spent his remaining years with his family in St. Louis but took every opportunity to return to Iowa for visits with his relatives and old friends. He valued his friendships highly and always enjoyed these visits. He loved to talk and loved a joke and somehow he touched all who knew him with the great kindness of his heart.

Many lives have been touched by this man, and his passing leaves a void that nothing can ever fill.

“He was our champion, our friend, whom we shall always miss.”
