OBITUARY

The funeral services of the late Rev. H.D.F. GAFFIN, a former resident of Coopersville, were held in the Free Methodist church at Coopersville Feb. 15 at 2:00 p.m. He was born in the state of Illinois in 1857 and died at his home in Spring Arbor, Michigan, Feb. 12, 1934.
The services were in charge of Rev. J. A. HUDNUTT, who preached the funeral sermon. About twenty-five other ministers were present, who assisted.
He became a Christian in his 17th year and began the work of an active minister in his 21st. year. For several years he traveled circuits, for sixteen years had the work of a traveling elder, and for fourteen years was financial agent of two of the educational institutions of the church. The last eight years of his life he held a superannuate relation, residing at Spring Arbor.
He is survived by his widow, several other relatives and many friends, as was evidenced by the large attendance at the funeral. He was buried in the family lot at Coopersville.
