Obituary

Capt. Frank Guyette

The funeral of Capt. Frank Guyette was held at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Mildred Wagner, in Jericho Center, yesterday afternoon. The funeral was to have been held Saturday but was postponed on account of the flood. Services were conducted by the Rev. William Cashmore of Jericho. Prayers were said at the grave, where members of the G. A. R. Said farewell to their comrade. Many relatives, friends, and neighbors attended the services. There was a profusion of flowers. Captain Guyette spent the greater part of his life in Burlington, where he was well known and much respected. He was a veteran of the Civil War and for many years keeper of the light house on Juniper Island. There were present at the funeral his two daughters, Mrs. Mildred Wagner and Miss Marguerite Guyette and his two sons, Allan and Edward of Wilkes Barre, Pa., who made the trip from their homes by automobiles. Two grandsons were also present. Sons of Veterans acted as bearers. The interment was in Lake View cemetery.
