About eight years ago his health failed him and he has been a great sufferer ever since, but through it all he never complained, was patient to the end which came unexpected Monday evening. He loved his home-to him it was his castle and place of rest-and did all in his power to make it pleasant for those who came. He was a kind and loving husband and father, a good citizen and neighbor.
