Childers, C. D. – Obituary

“Though not unexpected, it was with deep regret that the people of Chloride received the news of the death of Constable C. D. Childers on the morning of the 21st. Always genial, good natured, and ready to lend a helping hand to the sick and needy, Cy will be greatly missed from among us.” Farewell to thee, Cy! Thy story is as the story of all. To live, then to die! And a few left to comment on thy fall. This was ever true, And so must be while man on earth shall live. The mourners are few, For those who back to God their souls must give. A few somehow learn To love the life we lead and what we are. Many never turn To see, or seeing, it is from afar They know not, care less, And pass us quickly by on life’s highway; Our hand they never press, The words of love they never stop to say. That is human life! All die, but few can stop to mourn the dead. But few question why, But o’er and o’er the same old words are said, As we are laid away To join again the elements of earth. Some kind friend will pray And try to tell our deeds they think of worth, And thus we pass away!” Mohave Daily Miner as published in Kingman, Arizona. August 27,...

Green, Philip Gordon “Phil” – Obituary

A celebration of life will be held at the Island Funeral Home in Vashon, Wash., on Saturday, June 11, at 11:30 a.m., followed immediately by the committal in the family plot at the Vashon Cemetery.

He attended Burton Elementary School and Vashon High School, and then attended the Lakeside School in Seattle for his senior year when he was recruited to play football for them. The following two years Phil played football at Whitman College where, as the varsity quarterback, he earned the name of “Rabbit Tracks.” While at Whitman, he supported himself by baby-sitting for the young Adam West, who later became famous for playing the role of Batman. Phil initially raised eyebrows by being the first young male in Walla Walla to be employed as a nursemaid and baby-sitter, an experience that subsequently served him well when he produced his own considerable family.
