He leaves to mourn his passing, his mother, his step-father, Samuel R. Newton; two brothers, Hillard, at Hixton; and Hallan, of Racine; and two sisters, Mrs. Archie Nelson, of Taylor, and Winifred Jane Newton, at home; and one niece, Patricia Ann Russell, of Hixton.

Funeral services were held at the Methodist church last Friday afternoon, the Rev. C. H. Pierstorff preaching the sermon, and the musical numbers were rendered by Rev. and Mrs. Pierstorff. Burial was in the family lot in Houghtonburg Cemetery.
