Dean, Archie – Obituary

Rifle Ends Life Of Shell-Shocked Man

Archie Dean, Farm Laborer of Haines, Ends Own Life With Rifle at Rouse Farm Sunday.

The body of Archie Dean, who has been employed on farms in the Haines community for a number of years, was found in an orchard at the old Pratt farm, northwest of town, now occupied by Rouse brothers, last Sunday noon. Beside the body was a .44 calibre rifle, and state police and county officers were called and found evidence that showed the man had taken his own life.

Archie Clifford Dean was a shell-shocked World war veteran, it is said. He was born in Portland, May 4, 1884. He enlisted in the United States Navy in Portland April 20, 1907, and served during the World war. He was discharged from the Puget Sound navy yard October 8, 1919.

The deceased is survived by his mother, Mrs. Julia Ann Masse, and a sister, Alfine Masse, both of Estacada.

The body was taken by train Tuesday evening by the deceased’s nephew Lloyd Smith to Oregon City, where services are to be held at 2 p.m. Thursday, followed by interment in the Oregon City cemetery.
