Don D. Eidemiller
A bright, young life is rapidly nearing the end of the journey, according to the latest word from the bedside of Don Eidemiller, who is at Dr. Warren Coleman's hospital and who was operated upon some weeks ago for appendicitis. From the first his condition was very critical, but still there was hope that he might recover. The young man is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Eidemiller, of West Water street, and only last March completed the commercial work in the high school, where he made a fine record and was very faithful in his studies. He at once secured a position at the plant of the Troy Manufacturing Company, where his ability was recognized and he was in line for rapid promotion, when suddenly he was stricken. He was born in Troy January 8, nineteen years ago.

One of Troy's brightest and most promising young men answered the final summons at 7:25 o'clock Saturday night when Don Eidemiller passed away at Dr. Warren Coleman's hospital. Submitting to an operation five weeks ago last Saturday the young man apparently had a fighting chance for recovery, but complications arose, which made his condition extremely critical and slowly his young life ebbed. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Eidemiller, of West Water street, and was born near Troy January 8, 1898. His early education was in the country school and June 22, 1912, he was a Patterson graduate from District No 10, Concord township. In the fall of that year he entered the Troy schools and last March he completed the commercial course of the high school and at once entered the employ of the Troy Manufacturing Company, where he was in charge of the stock department. Both in school and in business Don Eidemiller made a fine record and was a true friend to every one and his noble traits of character made him a favorite among his wide circle of friends. He was a member of the First Lutheran church, with which he united during the Honeywell meetings. He is survived by the parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Eidemiller, and one brother, Kenneth Eidemiller. The funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon at the residence, with Rev. H. L. Meister, of the First Lutheran church, in charge, and burial will be made in Riverside cemetery.
