    Deacon Lyle E. Maxson, son of Russell and Hannah Babcock Maxson, was born on a farm three miles west of Nortonville, Kans., May 31, 1878, and died at Littleton, Colo., Oct. 25, 1967.
    He was baptized and joined the Nortonville Seventh Day Baptist Church at the age of twelve and took an active interest in the work of the Sabbath School, riding many miles on a bicycle to organize its Home Department. He continued to be an eager Bible student throughout his life.
    On Oct. 30, 1904 he married Thyrzia Pierce and to them were born five children, Roscoe L., and Elwin E. of Boise, Idaho, Mrs. Esther H. Williams of North Loup, Nebr., Orland R. of Denver, Colo., and Lt. Col. Lewis E. Maxson of Sacramento, Calif., all of whom survive. The family home was in Oklahoma, California, and Nebraska for brief periods, but most of their years were spent in eastern Colorado and in the Denver area.
    The Denver Seventh Day Baptist Church which he joined in 1933 chose Mr. Maxson as a deacon in 1946, and he served faithfully in this office and in many other capacities. In his last years he was given the title of deacon emeritus. Following his first wife's death he was married Aug. 12, 1954 to Hattie Lane; and after her death he was married on Sep. 10, 1960, to Bessie Bond with whom he lived at Nortonville until 1964. Upon her death he made his home with his son Orland in Denver.
    A memorial service was conducted on Sabbath, October 28, by Rev. Albert N. Rogers, pastor of his church. The body he had willed for medical research at the University of Colorado Medical Center. A. N. R.
