He was a kind husband, a loving and affectionate father, He made a profession of religion in his early years, united with the Disciple church, of which he was elder at the time of his death.

He labored in Sunday School as teacher and as superintendent, always willing and ready to do all he could in the up-building of God's kingdom. His desire was that those around him should have the same faith, and enjoy the same that he enjoyed. He was esteemed by all his neighbors and beloved by all who knew him. Amiable, he won all, intelligent, he charmed all, fervent, he loved all, and dead, he saddened all.
