Immediate survivors include his widow, Mrs. Tressie Brinkman and a son Benjamin:18, his father Mr. Henry Brinkman; two sisters and one brother, Mrs. Carrie Deeter of Covington, Mrs. Bertha Billingley and Harry Brinkman both of Greenville. Funeral services have been arranged for Sunday afternoon and will be conducted at the residence at 1 o'clock and at the Presbyterian Church of which he was a member at 2 o'clock. Rev. Donald E. Mitchell will officiate. Interment will be made in the Highland Cemetery.
