The news of the death of Mr. Blecke was a shock to all who know him. Mr. Blecke was one of Clark County’s most honored and respected men and well liked by all who knew him. He grew to manhood on their home farm when he died. As a young man he was always kind and pleasant to all, never passing anyone without a smile. His death is a sad one for his loved ones and they have the sympathy of the entire community in their time of sorrow.
