THE WESTERN STAR, 31 January 1913
Obituary of CLINT C. WUCHTER

The people of Protection and vicinity were shocked on Thursday evening of last week to learn of the sudden death of Clint C. Wuchter, one of the best known young men of that city. Clint had attended orchestra practice and apparently was in his usual health. About 10:30 p.m. he returned to the home of his brother, Jake, and as he entered the house it was noticed that he appeared to be dizzy. He called for a chair, and had no more than seated himself when he expired. Apoplexy was given as the probable cause of death.

Clint was one of Protection's highly respected citizens. He had a wide aquaintenanceships throughout the western half of the county, as he had lived in Protection tp. since 1884 when his parents, Mr. and Mrs. P. P.
Wuchter, settled there and thus were numbered among the pioneer settlers of the county. He was regarded by all as a very honorable young man. He was especially popular in the musical circles of Protection, having been
for a number of years a prominent member of the Protection band. At the time of his death, he was 35 years and 24 days of age. His father died a little over 8 years ago. His mother, two brothers, Jake, who at present is in Old Mexico, and John, who lives in the state of Washington, and four sisters, Mrs. H. Prichard of Lawson, Kansas, Mrs. W. W. Baxter and Mrs. Will Haelsig of Protection and Mrs. Chas. Johnson of Capron, Okla., are left to mourn the loss of a dutiful son and brother. Interment was made in the Protection cemetery on Sunday afternoon. The funeral services, conducted in the opera house were in charge of Elder Tanksley pastor of the Christian church in Protection. The attendance at the funeral was quite large. The Odd Fellows and Woodmen lodges, of which orders the deceased was a member, had charge of the burial services.
