April 1943

Charles Henry Templin, 74, pioneer and highly respected citizen of Live Oak County, passed away suddenly at his home a few miles north of Three Rivers at 2:00 p.m. Tuesday, April 20th.

There was no one present at the time of his passing except Roy Gill, who was working for him at the time, and Mr. Gill informed relatives immediately and a physician summoned. The cause of Mr. Templinís death was attributed to heart failure.

Mr. Gill stated, the News was informed, that Mr. Templin seemed in his usual health and had just finished drinking a cup of coffee, and told Mr. Gill that he thought he would lie down on the bed and take a nap, and in going from one room to another he passed out on the front porch of his home, and Mr. Gill hearing a lumbering noise on the porch, investigated and found Mr. Templin had already passed away.

The funeral services were conducted at the Rice Funeral Home Chapel in this city at 11:00 a.m. today (Thursday) by Rev. A. M. Foster, Methodist minister of Three Rivers, with the Rice Funeral Home in charge of the funeral arrangements. Interment was in the Three Rivers cemetery.
