After a long, busy and useful life he died as he had lived, honored, trusted and loved. He leaves to mourn his death, three children, Robert of Ipswich, S.D., Hannah (Mrs. Mike Stewart) of Plainfield, Wis., and Leonard who still resides on the home farm, all of whom were here to attend the funeral.
