When yet a small child he moved with his parents to St. Libory, Howard County, Nebraska, where he grew to manhood and received his education. In 1909 he came to this section of Wyoming and filed on his homestead six miles south of Keeline, near Flattop. After proving up on his homestead, he moved to Manville, where he operated a garage. Here he lived with his widowed mother. He himself never married.

Some eleven years ago he gave up his business because of ill health. During these remaining years he was always in poor health, and several times he spent time in a hospital in Omaha. The last few months of his life were spent with his sister, Mrs. Jane Calvin.

His father, mother and four brothers preceded him in death. He is survived by two sisters and three brothers: Mrs. Jane Calvin of Bremerton, Wash., Mrs. Hattie Stallman of Manville; Roy Bridge of Fremont, Neb., Charlie Bridge of North Loup, Neb. and Claude (Pete) Bridge of Manville. Also eight nephews and two nieces and many friends.
