Obituary

James McGarry;

Hundreds of friends throughout the State, heard, with deep regret, the news of the death of James McGarry, of Beaver, Utah. Few men were better, or more favorably known than honest "Jim" McGarry, and the entire community in which he lived mourns the loss of a dear friend.

Generous of heart and mind, he won the admiration and respect of all who knew him. To the bereaved wife and family the loss is irreparable; ever a devoted husband, and loving father. The home life of Mr. McGarry and his family was ideal.

May God comfort the bereaved ones in their dire affliction, and the thought of a blessed reunion comfort them. The tenderest memories of a loving husband and father will ever linger the hearts of his wife and children. He has left them the noblest heritage--the memory of an honest, blameless life.

The Intermountain Catholic joins, with hosts of friends, in extending to the bereaved ones sincere sympathy.
