50 Years Ago - April 4, 1940

Death last week deprived Lusk of one of it's staunchest sports followers when Bill Tate, barber here for many years, answered the call. Mr. Tate was known as a grand admirer of clean sports, and he surely will be missed at Lusk high school basketball games. Bill made it a point to attend high school sports events. He knew nearly every boy in school.

William Tate Died at North Platte

William Tate, aged about 65 years, and a resident of Lusk for many years, passed away at a hospital in North Platte, Nebraska, where he had been for several weeks following an operation. Death came at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 26, 1940.

The deceased had followed the barber profession in Lusk and was widely known throughout the county. Little is known of his early life according to local residents. A son who survives, lives in the eastern states. A brother, Frank Tate, resides in Lusk.

Friends of the deceased were making arrangements to have the body brought here from North Platte for funeral services and burial will be made in the Lusk cemetery. Services will be conducted from the Peet Mortuary Chapel Friday afternoon of this week.

Note: The Lusk Cemetery records have William Tate buried in the H Section of the cemetery. The picture of the hand-made stone was taken in the B section. No stone has been found in the H section.
