Well Known Citizen of Elgin Passes Away

The death of David Tucker occurred in this city, Wednesday, October 11, 1905, at 3:40 p.m. after an illness of only a few days. Death was due to valvular heart disease.

Gardiner D. Tucker was born in Fulton County, Arkansas, January 29, 1872, and was therefore 33 years, 11 months and 12 days old at the time of death. He came to Oregon with his parents in 1878 and settled on Elk Flat, in this country, where he resided permanently until a few months prior to his demise. Deceased obtained a good common school education in the public schools of this section and at the age of twenty began teaching, which he followed for six years. He then engaged in farming, which occupation he was following at the time of his death. In March, 1896, he was married to Dora F. Burnaugh, who with three young children survive him. During his entire career he took an active interest in educational and political lines and was an active and progressive citizen. Having grown to manhood in this community he leaves a large circle of friends, who with his sorrowing wife and children and numerous other relatives are left to mourn the untimely death of a kind, considerate husband and father and an honorable, upright citizen.

Deceased held a $2,000 life insurance policy in the Woodmen of the World and was also a member of the local I.O.O.F. lodge and under the direction of these orders the funeral services will be held in the Presbyterian church at 1:30 p.m. today. The interrment will take place in the city cemetery.
