The funeral was held at the Weber Church near his home on Wednesday, the 17th. The services were conducted by Bro. Isaiah Wismer (Text, Jas. 4: 14) and Bishop Jonas Snider (Text, Matt. 24: 40). Bro. Cressman leaves to mourn a sorrowing widow, 2 sons and 6 daughters ( 3 of whom are married, two living in Saskatchewan, Can., and one at Vineland, Ont.), 4 brothers and 3 sisters. He will be greatly missed in the community and in the church, where he had been a member for over 20 years. The call came very suddenly. He was in the field at work and while unhitching at noon one of the horse kicked him. He soon became unconscious and his right side was paralyzed. He lay in that condition from Wednesday noon till Saturday morning, when he passed peacefully away.
