He has resided above the Stone & Rutz Barber Shop of 217 Main Street for a number of years. Two sisters and two brothers survive, Mrs. Tillie McCabe of Quincy, Ill; Mrs. Alice Parks of Remington; DW Osborn of Fowler and Scott Osborn of this city. CL Parks of Remington, a nephew who is an undertaker, took the body to the home of Mrs. Parks at Remington from where the funeral will be held at 2 o’clock Friday afternoon.
