In February, 1920, he left Colby to try his fortunes in the big city of Detroit and was an electrician for the Ford Motor Co. at the time of his death. On July 26, 1944, he was united in marriage with Helen Schwalm of Pigeon, Mich., by Rev. Norton of Trinity M. E. church, Highland Park, Detroit.

Surviving are his wife; his mother, Mrs. Fred Hutton of Colby; one sister, Mrs. W. E. (Irma) Maier, and three nephews, Eugene D. Herbert D. and Gerald Byron, Maier.
