The years of his childhood youth and young manhood were spent in their community where hosts of friends respected his life and today mourn what, from earthly vision, seems an untimely departure. Nearly five years ago he terminated ******************** ************************* he had served ***** for a number of years, and with his family left for Sedalia, Mo. to supervisse the Missouri Egg and Poultry Company, becoming Vice President and Manager of this nationally know commercial institution. His remarkable success in both the Tampico and Sedalia projects is attributable to a combination of ability, integrity and studious application to his life vocation. Mr. GLASSBURN was joined in marriage to Miss Cora BRAINARD (sic) of Tampico, Illinois June 9th, 1897. Of this young couple it might be said "Two mornings met, making doubly respendent life's beautiful day." For nearly a year they resided on a farm, from which they moved to the village. The children, Gerturde, Evelyn, Louis, Howard and Wade, completed this gifted home. Little Howard lingered only seven months, a heavenly bult to be transplanted in god's fair Garden 'ere the bud had fully opened its redelent petals. Also Miss Evelyn, three years ago passed from the brief sweet morning of this life to the youthhood of Eternal Day. Two sisters, Mrs. A. FERRIS of Tampico and Mrs. Ina FERRIS of Sterling and three brothers, Messrs. J. P. and Glenn of Tampico and J. L. of Amboy ****** the deceased. Mr. GLASSBURN died of pneumonia with which he ws stricken on December 30th while enroute to Kansas City on a business engagement. He had previouslybeen indisposed for several weeks but was able to attend to his business affairs until this date. His congenial disposition led him into several fraternities and he occupied high rank in the Masonic Order being a member of the Blue Lodge of Tampico, and of the Knights Templar of Sedalia. The latter conducted a Memorial Service inhis honor in the Masonic Temple before the family, with the body, left for his native home. Services were held in the Methodist church of Tampico on Saturday afternoon. Hundreds came to pay their respectsto their former neighbor and friend. Banks of beautiful flowers filled the entire front of the church, whispering with silent eloquence the finest tribute. Duets were sung by Mrs. F. A. BREWER and Mr. Homer TURNER. The pastor spoke on the "Unknown Guest." A large body of Masons from various places pronounced their tender obsequies at the grave of their departed brother. Mrs. GLASSBURN and children, will return to Sedalia the latter part of this week. - George Gable. A project of the TAMPICO AREA HISTORICAL SOCIETY http://www.tampicohistoricalsociety.citymax.com
