    Willis A. Langworthy was born in Wasioja, Minn., November 25, 1860, and died at his home in Dodge Center, July 26, 1928.
    He was the elder son of Joseph N. and Mary Langworthy, and had lived in the vicinity of Dodge Center all his life.
    He was of a cheerful disposition and took special interest in music and for years took active part in supplying instrumental music for the Sabbath school, etc. He was a member of the town band for years.
    His first marriage was to Effie Brown.
    His second marriage was to Phebe J. Olin, November 20, 1894. No children were born to this union, but at the age of eight years, Reginald was placed in the home by the Rev. H. D. Clark, temporarily; this place he filled so well that finally they adopted him; and he has worthily taken the place of son in this time of sickness and death in their home.
    In early manhood “Will” was baptized and united with the Seventh Day Baptist church of this place. He was somewhat quiet as to his religious views, but when put to the test, he always tried to stand for right, which he proved at last, as he so placidly and trustingly met death.
    He leaves his brother, Adelbert, his wife, and son, Reginald, also a host of relatives and friends to mourn their loss.
    Funeral services were held Saturday afternoon at 1:30 at the home and 2:00 o’clock at the Seventh Day Baptist church, conducted by the Rev. Arthur Thomson, by the absence of his pastor, Rev. E. M. Holston. Burial was in Riverside cemetery.
