He suffered from cancer for several years. He engaged in farming and also as wagonmaker until his retirement fifteen years ago. On Feb. 24, 1880, he was united in marriage to Mary Lehman, who predeceased him April 7, 1929. This union was blessed with three sons and one daughter: Jacob L., Breslau, Ont.; Ezra and Aaron, near St. Jacobs, Ont.; and Mary Ann, at home. He also leaves 14 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren, and one brother (John, near St. Jacobs, who is ninety years of age). One grandchild, 3 brothers, and 6 sisters also preceded him in death. He united with the Mennonite Church in his youth and remained a faithful member until death. His seat in church was seldom vacant as long as health permitted, and he walked to church until about a year before his death. Funeral services were held Jan. 31, in charge of Oliver D. Snider and Noah Hunsberger. Text, Job 5: 26. Interment was made in the Conestoga Riverside Cemetery.
