Succumbed To Pneumonia

The following article, published in the Lusk Herald, is courtesy of the Wyoming Newspaper Project.

Austin DeCastro, the second eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank DeCastro, old-time residents of Lusk, passed away at his home yesterday evening from an attack of pneumonia, at the age of fourteen. He had been ill for some time, and it was thought and sincerely hoped that the crisis had been passed last week, when his sister, Mrs. George, returned to her home in Scottsbluff, Nebr., Saturday. A relapse, however, occurred from which the little sufferer failed to rally and he passed from this life deeply mourned.

His parents, and his brothers and sisters have the heartfelt sympathy of the whole community in their bereavement, as Austin was a good, bright little fellow and will be sorely missed from the family circle.
