Conrad C. Esky was born in Shelby County, Ohio on December 29, 1871; he departed from this earthly life at Philadelphia, Pa., having reached the age of 58 years, 5 months, and 21 days. He is survived by the following brothers and sisters; Mrs. Rose Kerr, of Bellefontaine, O., Mrs. Dora Holfinger of Covington; George Esky of Springfield; Mrs. Anna Korber of Dayton; Henry Esky of Indianapolis, Ind.; and Mrs. Emma Wendrick of Dayton. Many other more distinct relatives and acquaintances are made sad over his unexpected death. The deceased was baptized in infancy and in early boyhood days he united with the Methodist Church. Mr. Esky was a rail roader for many years, defective hearing caused him to change from this line of work. He had traveled extensively and lived and worked in many different parts of the country. For the past seven or eight years he had made his home in Philadelphia. Esky was of a quiet and reserved disposition. He was honest and industrious. And while for many years living away from his brothers and sisters, yet he would occasionally visit with them and all would enjoy these associations and now recall them with pleasure.
Thus death again entered into this family circle and removed a loved one. Truly, in the midst of life we are in death.
"Leave all to God; thy vision cannot scan
His ways of Righteousness, His depths of grace;
But thou shalt know, when thou dost see His face,
How full of holy love His perfect plan.
Leave all to God; but hear Him speak to them,
Cling thou the more to Me when clouds are dark,
Make sure that thou thyself art in the Ark;
All else thou then wilt calmly leave to Me."
