He leaves to mourn his mother, two brothers, Frank of Ilion and Samuel of Otselic; one sister, Mrs. Bert Hughes, of Poolville and a host of friends and other relatives. The funeral was held at the home of Bert Hughes in Poolville Monday, Rev Paul Monk of Earlville officiating. Burial was made in the Lebanon cemetery.
