Funeral services for John F. Bryant, 79, were conducted from the Peet Chapel on Friday afternoon, February 24, at 2:30.

About 25 years ago Mr. and Mrs. Bryant moved into Lusk and for ten years Mr. Bryant was caretaker at the Lusk cemetery, which position he resigned four years ago because of ill health, and since that time has been confined to a hospital most of the time.

He died at his home in Lusk on Tuesday afternoon, Feb. 21, at 3:00 o'clock.
