Manchester, his wife, the former Martha Crist to whom he was married June 18, 1924, and six children, Darlene, Mary Ann, Beulah May, Lewis, Marlin and Ronald. He also leaves a sister, Addie Smith of Lamont.
Funeral services were held Wednesday at two o'clock in the Gill Chapel. Rev. R. Park Anderson was in charge. Burial was in the Strawberry Point cemetery. Pallbearers were Lewis Drahn, Carl Fuhrman, Will Gladwin, Conrad Kleinlein, Ernest Burrack and John Kray.
