The Funeral service of Andrew J. Dossett, one of Waco's most popular business men, who died yesterday morning at 1 o'clock at a Temple sanitarium, will be held Monday morning at 10 o'clock.
A number of relatives from out of the city cannot be here before that time.
The body was brought to Waco yesterday by Undertaker F.M. Compton.
Active pallbearers for the funeral will be: Baker Hoskins, J. Lee Davis, Joe Ward, A.E. Weymouth, W.H. Talley, Ed McCullough, H.C. Risher and Homer Martin. Honorary: Judge W.M. Sleeper, Tom F. Bush, L.M. Griffin, W.J. Neale, C.L. Johnson, Ed Rotan, George Willig, W.W. Woodson, Karl Sherman, Lawrence Westbrook, L.N. Lee, and Walter G. Lacy, Waco; Dr. A.C. Scott, Dr. Woodson, Temple; Dr. Sapp, Cameron; C.W. Strauss, Rosebud, and H. Chandler, Dallas.
Dr. Dossett was born in Meridian, Miss. coming to Texas about twenty-eight years ago. He had been in Waco about five years.
He is survived by his wife and six children, Walter B. Dossett, Texas City; Andrew J. Dossett, student at State University; Staunton B. Dossett , Baylor Student; Mrs. Leland McCullough, Misses Frances and Sarah Dossett, Waco. He also has five sisters and three brothers, Mrs. Oscar Francis and Mrs. John Goureay, Terry, Miss; Mrs. G.R. Wilson, San Antonio; Mrs. W.H. Henly, Cameron; Mrs. Charles Huff, Houston; W.L. Dossett, Beaulah, Miss.; Joe Dossett, Quanah and A.M. Dossett, Hillsboro.
Although Mr. Dossett had only been in Waco a comparatively short time, he had made the acquaintance and secured the esteem and confidence of the hundreds of residents, and many who did not know him personally were acquainted with the splendid reputation and kindly characteristics of Mr. Dossett through others.
He was one of the most active members of the Saint Paul's Episcopal church, was generous and earnest, and his influence in that congregation was widely felt, extending also to other denominations in the city. He was one of the most active Christian personalities in Waco, always at his post and always enthusiastically active.

In matters concerning the betterment of Waco he was ever alert and active, doing more than his part with a spontaneity and heartiness most encouraging to others. He was a director of the Chamber of Commerce, director of the Red Cross and was chairman of the finance committee of that organization, beside many other similar connections. He was at the time of his death president of Saint Paul's Men's club, and was secretary of the missionary committee of the Diocese of Texas. He was a thirty second degree Mason, a Shriner and both a York and Scottish Rite Mason. He was a member of Temple Commandery No. 1, Temple. He served as king of the 1919 Cotton Palace.
Mr. Dossett, though a comparatively young man, was a wonderful success as a business man. His interests chiefly were in the line of cotton compresses and warehouses, and he was secretary and general manager of the Exporters and Traders Compress company at Waco, also having plants at Cameron and Quannah. He was president of the Shipside Compress company of Galveston, with six plants there. Two plants are in Texas City.
Socially Mr. Dossett was delightful, as he always took the time, though a very busy man, to look after his social side. He was invariably cheerful and bright, and as one friend said yesterday was " always the same" not presenting a welcome to friends at one time and appearing cold or thoughtless at another; he was invariably cordial, and his bright smile and cheering word never failed.
