He had been suffering from weakness of the heart for some time, and a heart attack was the cause of his passing on Thursday morning, soon after rising.

Since that time they have lived on their farm west of New Dundee. Six children were born to them, two of whom died in infancy. There remain, besides his widow, 2 sons (Alvin and Eldon), 2 daughters (Ida and Mary), and 1 brother Urias.
