Clyde Weaver, son of Mr. and Mrs. George W. Weaver, and a well-known young man died at his residence in West Kittitas, six miles west of this city, Friday, January 4th at 9:15 p.m., of heart failure.
Mr. Weaver had been more or less indisposed for several days and had returned from a trip to Roslyn where he went on business. He retired rather early and shortly his wife noticed that he was restless and gasping. She arose and lit a lamp but he passed away before she could do anything for him or even give any alarm of his illness.
Mr. Weaver, had he lived until the coming May, would have been 30 years old. He came to this valley some twenty-five years ago with his parents from his native state-Kansas-and from near Columbus. December 15, 1904 he and Miss Daisy Bates [Prater], daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Bates [James Prater and Mary Farris], were married and the result of this union was one child, which is now about nine months old. Besides this little child and his parents, he leaves a sorrowing widow to mourn his taking away.
Funeral services were conducted from the West Side M. E. Church, Sunday at 11 a.m. and the interment was in the IOOF Cemetery near Thorp, 2 p.m. To the bereaved the Dawn extends sympathy.
