THE WESTERN STAR, 6 February 1942
Retired Business Man Dies Suddenly
C. H. Chadwick Had Been Ill For Past Three Years

C. H. Chadwick, who had been in failing health for several years, passed away at his home in this city at 5:15 a.m. last Friday, February 2, the result of a heart attack. About three years ago he suffered a paralytic stroke. He became quite ill on Wednesday of last week and continued to grow worse in spite of medical aid.

Funeral services were held at the home at 2:30 o'clock last Sunday afternoon and were in charge of Rev. Major W. Parker, pastor of the Methodist church in this city. A quartet composed of Mr. and Mrs. Leo Wilkins, Miss Jane Stewart and John White sang "In The Garden" and Abide With Me." There were many floral offerings. Burial was in Crown Hill cemetery beside a son, Guy, who passed away in 1929.

The pall bearers were Harvey Thompson, Asa Hoofer, T. C. Mahan, Fred Robbins, Harrison Cook and Edwin Hardisty.

Chas. Harvey Chadwick, son of Samuel and Susan Chadwick, was born April 1, 1868, in Clinton county, Pennsylvania, and departed this life, January 30, 1942, at Coldwater, Kansas, aged 74 years and 9 months.

At the age of four he moved with his parents to Goff, Nemaha county, Kans., where he grew to manhood. On December 18, 1893, he was married to Lucy Ann Sparrow. To this union three children were born: Ethel L.; Guy Harold, who passed away September 5, 1929; and Lester Leonard, who died October 20, 1902, at Goff, Kansas.

In October, 1913, he moved to Coldwater, Kans., and with his son, Guy, established the Chadwick Produce and very successfully conducted that business for several years. Later, Mr. Chadwick became connected with the local telephone office. Three years ago he retired from active business because of severe illness.

He is survived by his wife, Lucy Ann Chadwick, one daughter, Mrs. Paul Gossett, of Winfield, Kansas; a grandson, Rex L. Gossett of Pasadena, Calif.; a granddaughter, Phyllis G. Cooper of Russell, Kans.; one sister, Mrs. Julia Sams of Herington, Kans.; one half brother, N. Zimmerman of Wichita, Kans., and many friends, nieces and nephews.
