    • C. B. ATWOOD, LOCAL RANCHER, BURIED TUESDAY

      The unexpected death of C. B. Atwood, 64, prominent rancher and stockman of Ashley Ward happened early Saturday morning was a surprise to all as he was in better health than he had been for a long time.

      At about six a.m., he told his son, Wendell, he was going to the field to turn some irrigation water and would be back for breakfast and for Wendell to milk the cows.

      When he did not return, Wendell, with his mother, went to the field in a car. Wendell saw his father reclining under a tree a short distance from where he had taken a dam out of the ditch. He had stuck his shovel into the ground and then walked to the tree where death occurred from a heart attack.

      Mr. Atwood was one of the best and favorably known citizens of the Ashley Valley, counting his friends by the score. For sixteen years, under the administration of Sheriffs Dick Pope, Billy Preece and Hatch Murray, he served as deputy sheriff. Mr. Atwood was one of the group who arrested the notorious outlaws, Harry Tracy and Dave Lant. He also served as a road supervisor for a number of years.

      In 1917, the day his son, Ivan left Vernal as a soldier in the World War, Mr. Aywood was accidently kicked in the face by a horse, and for several months his life was held in a balance. Again in 1921, a horse fell with him, crushing his chest. At no time in 20 years was he free of a headache, yet he never complained and always greeted his friends with a smile

      Mr. Atwood when a young man helped to make the bricks used in buildings at the Indian Agency at Fort Duchesne, Whiterocks, the Ashley Co-op building in Vernal, besides many other brick buildings and dwellings in the Ashley Valley, including his own home.

      Charles Barber Atwood was born October 10, 1872, at Springville, Utah, the son of Charles B. and Louisa Brown Atwood. In 1885 he came to the Ashley Valley with his parents.

      On February 13, 1895, he married Manetta L. Johnstun at Vernal, who survives, also three sons, Terrell E. Atwood, Ranier, Washington; Ivan W. and Wendell Atwood, both of Vernal. Their only daughter, Mrs. Nina Hall died in 1935. Three brothers and one sister also survive: Schuyler C. Atwood, Vernal; Sim E. Atwood, Salt Lake City; Earl Atwood, Hanna and Mrs. Louie Glenn, Superior, Arizona. There are twelve grandchildren.

      Among those attending the funeral services from outside points were: Mr. and Mrs. Earl Atwood and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Terrell E. Atwood and two children, Mrs. Atwood's mother, Mrs. Elias Marshall, Lewiston, Idaho; Mrs. Delpha Neilsen, Shelley, Idaho; James Johnstun, St. George; Mr. and Mrs. Leon Glenn, Superior, Arizona; Mr. and Mrs. T. E. Atwood, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Johnstun and son, Mr. Hall and children from Pocatello, Idaho; Robert S. Pixton, West Jordan.

      Funeral services were held Tuesday at 4 p.m. in the Vernal First Ward bishopric with Bishop Alma Preece presiding and Counselor Walter Anderson conducting. A large crowd filled the chapel to pay their last respects to the departed. There were many beautiful floral offerings.

      Music was furnished by a special double quartet of the Vernal First Ward, accompanied by Mrs. Mable Stagg, who sang "When First the Glorious Light of Truth." "Cast Thy Bread Upon the Waters," and for the closing, "Wanted On the Other Side." A tenor solo, "The Last Cord," was rendered by F. J. Kennard.

      N. G. Sowards offered the invocation and the benediction was pronounced by Earnest Eaton.

      The pallbearers were Walter Corless, Lynn Ashton, Willis L. Johnson, Arthur Corless, Joseph Collier and Albert Snow. An honorary escort was from members of the Woodmen of the World of which order the deceased was a member.

      Interment was made in the Fairview cemetery under the direction of the Swain Funeral Home. The grave was dedicated by Robert S. Pixton of West Jordan.
