faithful to the master's Kingdom.

No one ever heard Mr. FICKEL complain when the load grew heavy and his unfailing care of his beloved
wife through her long illness endeared him to the hearts of the community.

The deceased has been janitor of the Haddam Grad School for the past eleven years and will be missed by the school children and teachers.

Funeral services were conducted Saturday at the Haddam Church by Rev. DIXON, assisted by Rev. SNARE. Mrs. Ivan BURTON, Mrs. H.L. GRASSLE, John JEFFERSON and Paul SMERCHECK sang. Interment was made in
