He was a kind considerate husband, and an affectionate brother, conscientious in all his dealings, and was patriotic. His honest dealings and cheerful disposition made for him a great circle of friends as was shown at the services Saturday in Chicago and Sunday in St. Elmo, where hundreds of friends came to pay their respects.
He will be sadly missed in his home and among friends.
