The pallbearers were Samuel Scott, William Sims,  Charles Hays, Chas. Bacon, Harry Moore and Delbert Pollitt.  Burial in Union Cemetery. The following obituary was read:
"Otis Garner, eldest son of Cyrus and Susan Marshall, was born  in Waveland, April 4th 1879, and passed away at the City Hospital  in Indianapolis January 22, 1933, age 53 years, 9 months and 18  days. Early in December he was taken ill with influenza, which  developed into double pneumonia, which caused his death.
"He grew to manhood in this community, attended Waveland  school and was also a member of the Methodist Church. He was of a  very charitable nature, always willing to assist any one as far  as he was able.

"He was married in 1906 to Dora Goff Hartman of Browns Valley,  who died ten years ago. He was of a family of ten children. The  father, three brothers and one sister have preceeded him 'over  the river.' He was a painter and paper hanger by trade which he  followed for a number of years. But in later years was in the  restaurant business. He was at one time owner and operator of the  Eaglet Cafe on Green St. in Crawfordsville, going from there to  Champaign, Illinois, then to Martinsville, Indiana, and at the  time of his death he had been night manager of a restaurant in  Indianapolis for three years.

"He leaves to mourn his loss, a mother, Mrs. Susan Marshall,  two brothers, Guy of Marshall, and Clyde of Waveland, three  sisters, Mrs. Freda Hill of Colfax, Mrs. Avery Fuller of  Waveland, and Miss Laverne at home, one step-daughter, Mrs. Eva  Wadell of Clinton; several nephews and many friends.
"And ever near is the unseen The dear immortal spirits tread.  For all the boundless Universe is Life; There is no Death."  - Diane Killion
