Casket bearers were Wes Lummis, Phil Thull, Ralph Koeningsman, Ralph Guard, John Williams, Jr., and Paul Carrico.
The Harrison Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.
I also found the death notice on Fred Brown, & the obituary on Agnes Brown. If you would like them e-mail me directly & I will scan & send them to you.
Good Luck with your research, Vickie
