He began life in the grocery business, which he continued successfully to the day of his retirement from active business a few years ago. His widow and three children survive him.

Here she was the principal of the primary department and connected with all of the church societies. She leaves three sisters, two in Wintersport, Me., and one in Newton, Mass., and two brothers in Maine. At the funeral service this after noon at the Tabernacle Baptist Church, the primary department marched by the casket, and each child dropped a flower on the body of their superintendent and friend. The services were conducted by the Rev. Dr. Erwin DENNETT, pastor of the church. Burial will be in Greenwood Cemetery.
