Obituary

GASSETTS
Frederick A. Lockwood

Frederick A. Lockwood died at his home, 240 Lexington street, East Boston, March 3, of a paralytic shock. The remains were brought to Gassetts the 6th. Services were held at H. Whitaker’s, on the old place, where Mr. Lockwood’s father, Augustus Lockwood, died Feb. 1. His five sisters and sons of his two brothers were present at the funeral at which Rev. Mr. Backford of Springfield officiated. The remains were placed in the tomb at Springfield. Thanks are due the many old neighbors who assisted in paying the last tribute of respect to their much respected friend.

The following is taken from the Boston Globe of March 6: The funeral of Frederick A. Lockwood took place at 8 last evening at his home, 250 Lexington st., East Boston.

Rev. J. K. Richardson of Brockton, a classmate of Mr. Lockwood at Newton theological seminary, delivered the address. The scripture reading was by Rev. T. M. Butler of Canton, also a fellow student, and the remainder of the exercises were conducted by Rev. F. M. Gardner of the Central square Baptist church. Selection were given by a quartet.

Many prominent business men, 40 employees of the Lockwood manufacturing company in a body, and engineer Charles M. Thompson, representing the Cape Cod canal projectors, were present. Among the floral tributes were a collection of Easter lilies inscribed "Our Founder, Vermont Tribune" from the Lockwood company, a closed book of roses and thistles under an arch of Easter lilies from its employees, and a wreath of pansies, violets, roses and ivy from John E. Lynch.

Flags on vessels in the harbor and on the buildings of several manufacturing companies in East Boston were placed at half mast in honor of Mr. Lockwood. The burial will be at Springfield, Vt.
