Frank P. Brechbill

Miami Union
May 5, 1898

Numbered with Dead.

Stricken with paralysis on March 1, Frank P. Brechbill lingered until Sunday afternoon when he passed away, at his home on North Plum Street. During his long illness, it was only at rare intervals that he recognized the loving hands that smoothed his pathway to the grave. He was in his fifty-first year and had spent all the years of his manhood in Troy. In early life, he was engaged in business here but of later years he had been a very successful commercial traveler. He possessed may winning attributes and had a wide circle of friends. Of a genial and kindly nature added to a droll humor, which often appeared in the most unexpected ways, he was a most companionable man. He was rich in quaint sayings delivered in the quaintest manner. He will be missed by those who were his friends. He leaves a widow and daughter to the long life of grief that follows the taking away of a kind loving husband and a tender and affectionate father.

The funeral was held at his home, yesterday afternoon, the services being conducted by Rev. Chas. Herron, in the presence of a large gathering of friends. The floral tributes were numerous and beautiful, the most notable and appropriate being the broken wheel sent by his former employers, the Troy Buggy Works Co.
