The injury occurred July 18 when he fell from a load of hay to the concrete barn floor. Sept. 12, 1939, he was married to Minerva Hoffman Bauman, who remains. Also remaining are 4 children (Gordon, Willard, Nelson, and Pearl, all at home), his father, and one brother (Arnold). His mother, one brother and one sister predeceased him. He lived on his parental farm from birth and farmed it for the last ten years. In his youth he became a Christian and united with the Mennonite Brethren in Christ Church. Five years ago he united with the St. Jacobs Mennonite Church, of which he was a faithful member until death. Funeral services were held at the St. Jacobs Church July 22. More than a thousand people attended the service, which was in charge of Roy S. Koch, assisted by C. N. Good and Peter Wiebe. Burial was made in the cemetery at Three Bridges.
