He is survived by his mother, Mrs. Hattie Page, one brother, James, at home; two sisters, Pearl, at home, and Mrs. Clarence Fisher of the village. His father died in March 1935.

The body lies in state at the Izydorek Funeral Parlors until the time of the funeral which will be held this morning (Thursday) at nine o’clock at St. Bernard’s Church, Rev. A.M. Muckerheide officiating. Interment will be made in the parish cemetery.
