Kenneth Clayton DeGering
FUNERAL SERVICES HELD FOR KENNETH DEGERING SUNDAY
Kenneth DeGering, 16, died Thursday afternoon at the Lusk Hospital, following an emergency operation for a ruptured appendix the preceeding Sunday. His condition was critical when he entered the institution, and though everything possible was done to save the boy, he succumbed a few days after the operation.
Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon, May 28th, at the congregational church in Lusk, under the direction of the Peet Mortuary, with Rev. Millard H. Marshall, Pastor, officiating. A quartette composed of Mr. J. M. Hungate, Mrs. Robert Taylor, Mrs. H. J. Templeton, and Mr. Ford B. Kuns furnished the music, singing "Safe in the Arms of Jesus," "Does Jesus Care," and "Meet Me There." Pallbearers were: Jim Meng, Neil Sprague, Hugh Gunn, Don Hoffman, John Christian, and Joe Mashek.
Those who mourn his passing are his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Albert DeGering of Hat Creek, brothers, Milton, Leonard, and Johnny; sisters, Viginia, Nellie, and Esther, besides other relatives, and many friends.
Kenneth Clayton DeGering was born at his parent's ranch home at Hat Creek, Wyoming, on October 29, 1922, and passed away in Lusk, Thursday, May 25th, 1939, at 1:15 p.m. at the age of sixteen years, six months, and twenty-seven days.
He attended grade school at a rural school near his home, and had just completed his Junior year at the Lusk High School. He ranked high in his studies, was a member of the High School Band, active in football and basketball, and also prominent in class activities. He was a member of the Boy Scout organization.
His pleasant smile, his cheery greeting will live in the memory of loved ones and friends forever.
"Your going made the day so long.
We missed you so,
Until your spirit came to guide us through the gloom,
And gave us a glimpse of heaven anew."
