Obituary of FRANK H. BROWN
Death of Frank H. Brown

Frank H. Brown was born June 16, 1874 at Wilmette, Ill. He died in Grace hospital, Hutchinson, April 17, 1929, aged 54 years, ten months and one day.
In 1885, he came with his parents to Garfield, Kansas and grew to manhood on the claim taken by his soldier father, one of the most beautiful homesteads, known for its grove and fruit trees, for many miles about.
He was reared in a Christian home. He attended church and a Catholic school at Gross Point, Ill. After the death of his father, Mr. Brown and his mother moved to the present home south of Rozel.

August 3, 1916, he was married to Miss Lu Cora Hovey. To this union were born two children, Ella Gertrude and Hubert Frank.

Frank, as he was familiarly known was an exemplary husband and father and was happiest when he could be of help to others. He was a worthy man in business and one of the best of friends and neighbors.

He was of a quiet and reticent disposition, his greatest pleasure being in his children and his home. He was a great lover of the finer things of life, especially music. A splendid neighbor, always ready to help others in any kind of service. Industrious and with a high sense of honor, he was very particular in all his business affairs. With his death the community has lost a good citizen and his associates, a true friend.

Besides his immediate family he leaves to mourn his death, four sisters and three brothers – Katie Wilson, of Garfield, Nicholas Brown of Pratt, Mrs. Anna Krueger of Bison, Joe Brown of Kinsley, Mrs. Louisa Enfield, of Hutchinson, Mrs. Ada Tuttle of Rozel and Ed Brown of Garfield, and a sister, Eva, who had preceded him in death. Five nieces and seven nephews and a host of relatives and friends. A twin sister had preceded him in death a number of years ago. The brother Nicholas was the only relative who could not be present at the funeral services.

Funeral services were held from the Congregational church at Garfield Sunday at 2 p.m., conducted by Rev. Ruff, of Burdett, assisted by pastors Johnson and Summers, of Garfield. A male quartet, Fritchief Riisoe, Guy Jenkins, Henry Draut and Charles Burke, sang.
Among the large floral offerings was a pillow with the words, “Brother Frank.” Six nephews were pall bearers. They are: Frank, Roy and Ross Wilson, Harry and Hubert Brown and Louis Tuttle.

Interment was in the beautiful cemetery at Garfield. The sympathy and love of the community is extended to those bereft.
