FRED W. WEARS

Fred W. WEARS was born at Mt. Zion, Missouri, on May 4, 1887, and died at the Clinton General Hospital at 4:25 p.m., June 28, 1957, following an illness of four weeks and one day.  He was seventy years, one month and twenty-four days of age at the time of his passing.

On April 9, 1916, he was united in marriage with Miss Mary Jane CARVER of Lowry City.  To this union five children were born.  ^They are as follows: Mrs. Doris COLLEY of Kansas City, Missouri; Major L.  ^Leo Glenn WEARS of San Diego, California; Mrs. Helen ^Jusha JUCHET of Kansas City, Missouri; John E. WEARS of Kansas City, Missouri; and Harold G. WEARS of Kansas City, Missouri.  He is also survived by one sister, Mrs. W.H. BAGLEY of Kansas City, Kansas, and four grandchildren.

In young manhood Fred WEARS learned the barber trade and followed that line of work for the remainder of his life, except for a short period when he was employed at the Lake City Arsenal during World War II.  He followed his trade for brief intervals in Colorado, Oklahoma, and Kansas, but spent the greater part of his working days here in Lowry City, his home town.  For a number of years since the war he has been employed part time in the Hinkle barber shop.

Fred WEARS was a quiet, friendly man, well liked by those who knew him.  He was a good husband and father and will be greatly missed, not only by the members of the bereaved family, but by a host of friends in the Lowry City community.
