Ben Abbas, 80, passed away Sunday afternoon, September 2, at Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
He was born March 26, 1882, in Grundy County, son of the late Arend and Remda Abbas. He resided in Grundy County until 1954, when he moved to Ackley.
On February 6, 1908, he was united in marriage to Aafke Frerichs. To this union were born seven children, three of whom preceded him in death, as did his wife, who died 22 years ago.
He is survived by two sons and two daughters: the Rev. Cornelius Abbas of Germany Valley, Illinois; Mrs. Tena Ludeman of Grand Rapids, Michigan; Mrs. John Betten (Minnie) of Wellsburg, and Arend Abbas of Ackley; and 15 grandchildren.
Early in life he made confessions of faith in the Ackley Christian Reformed Church. Here he remained a faithful member until his death. He was active in its organizations, serving many years in the Consistory and also as a Sunday School teacher.
Funeral services were held Thursday at 1:30 p.m. at the Ackley Christian Reformed Church with the Rev. L. C. Bergsma officiating. Interment was in the church cemetery.
