Other survivors are five grandchildren; two sisters, Mrs. Jennie Meitler, Sylvan Grove, Kan., and Mrs. Nan Schaeffer, Grand Island, Neb.; four brothers, John, Bill and Arthur of Sylvan Grove and Charles of New Plymouth. He and his wife had made their home with their son, Lloyd for a number of years.
