Bombard, Beauford Raymond (19 Feb. 1864 - 22 May 1944)

B. R. Bombard Dies Suddenly Monday

Had Gone Fishing to Bradley’s Dam With Grandson; Died Soon After Starting for Home in Car.

The residents of this community were shocked Tuesday morning when it was learned that B. R. Bombard, a well known resident of this community for the past 24 years, had suffered a heart attack while on a fishing trip to Bradley’s Dam; and had passed away about 10 o’clock Monday night. He had gone north with his grandson, Dale Bombard, and another friend. The party started for home when Mr. Bombard became ill. He had been in poor health for some time, and had suffered a heart attack a short time ago.

Beauford Raymond Bombard was born February 19, 1864, at Alden, Illinois, and was married August 14, 1887, his widow still survives him. He, with his family, lived in South Dakota, near Redfield for a number of years, but for the last 24 years he made his home in Wisconsin. He had followed the occupation of farmer, until his health compelled him to retire, and had made Spencer his home since that time. He and his wife were members of the M.E. church in Spencer.

Surviving Mr. Bombard are his wife, two sons and two daughters, Ray Bombard of San Diego, Calif., Milton Bombard of Loyal, Mrs. Wm. Nelson of Long Beach, Calif., and Mrs. Arthur Phillips of Spencer. There are also nine grandchildren and three great grandchildren surviving.

Complete arrangements for the funeral had not been made until word is received from the son and daughter who live in California, but full information can be secured from the Swarthout Funeral Home, but it is known the services will be at the M.E. church in Spencer with the Rev. Ellery J. Beal officiating.
