Just after passing the home of Dr Webb on Nettleton Ave., he sank to the ground dead. A number of friends took the body to the Carr Undertaking room, where it was prepared for burial.

He is survived by two sons, Loren and Will, who live in Oklahoma, one daughter, Mrs Rose Neville, of Iowa, and one step-daughter, Mrs Josie Huddleston, of this city.
He had reached the age of 84 years, having died on his birthday, and was very active for a man of his age.
The funeral will be held in Koshkonong where he was a member of Red Apple Lodge, I.O.O.F., the hour being 2 pm Saturday.
