Health for Several Years, and His

His Family and Many Friends

Mr. Savits' death came as a decided shock and surprise to his family and other relatives and friends. The past several years has found him in unusual good health. On the evening just prior to his death while sitting in his farm home conversing with his family regarding his relatives and others in Iowa, as was his custom before retiring he went to the barn to see that all was well. Upon his failure to reappear in due time his wife made an investigation with the result that she found him dead.

Later he spent several years at Adams, Nebr., where he was united in marriage with Miss Daisy Smith, on Dec. 23, 1890. To this union four children were born, three of whom died in infancy. Returning to Ogden from Nebraska, he resided here a short time before going to Colorado nineteen years ago. Those left to mourn his untimely death are his wife, son, Eldon Savits, mother, Mrs. E. Savits, of Des Moines, sisters, Mrs. T.E. Barnes, of Grand Junction, Mrs. Geo. Ridenour of Lake City; Mrs. William Adams of Des Moines; Mrs. A.E. Day, of Greely, Colo.; one brother, L. Savits, of this place, and one half brother, Casper Savits, of North Platte, Nebr.
