Byron Sharar of Huntington Dies Suddenly on Hi.
Death came suddenly from a severe heart attack last Tuesday [September 21, 1948] morning on a highway outside of Huntington to Byron Sharar. He was on his way from his home in Huntington to the farm home of his son-in-law, Vernon Topp.

He started along the highway and the road was very muddy. It looked as though he had stopped by a car parked along the roadside to clean the mud off his rubbers. Men close to the car saw him sit down on the running board and then fall over. He was dead by the time they had reached him.

Byron Sharar has been a long time resident of this county. He farmed until a few years ago and retired and moved into Huntington. He has had a heart ailment for a long time. He is a well known farmer and a man very highly respected by all his neighbors and acquaintances. He was a man very active in church work and an active member of the Methodist church.

Mr. Sharar was born in OBrien county June 23, 1872. He is survived by his widow and a daughter, Mrs. Vernon Topp, to whose farm he was going at the time of his death and a son Paul of Clinton. He is a brother of Fred Sharar of Dunnell and Joe Sharar of Los Angeles, Calif., and he has one sister Mrs. Frank Bombarger of this city.

The funeral services will be held Friday from the Huntington Methodist church at 2 p.m. with Rev. Donald Harrup officiating. Interment will be in the Oak Hill cemetery. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, September 23, 1948)
