Lloyd Cantrall of Kalamazoo, Michigan, died at Springfield Hospital at 7:45 p.m. Saturday, August 27, 1938, after an illness of several weeks.
Mr. Cantrall had been visiting relatives in Athens and Springfield when he was taken ill and entered the hospital where his death occurred.
While he hadn't been in the best of health, his death came somewhat as a surprise to his many friends. It is understood that he was a victim of kidney trouble.
Lloyd, son of the late Newton and Alice Matthews Cantrall, was born at Gibson City, Illinois December 1, 1881. At an early age he came with his parents to Athens, where he resided until several years ago when he moved with his family to Kalamazoo, where he has since resided.
He was united in marriage to Miss Edith Scott, who preceded him in death in March 1936.
During his residence here, Mr. Cantrall was engaged as an engineer of the mine.
Surviving are: one son, Walter of Kalamazoo; two sisters, Mrs. C. E. Canterbury, Cantrall and Mrs. C. F. Dawson, Macomb; three brothers, Myron and Lee Cantrall, Springfield, and Weller of Phoenix, Arizona.
Short funeral services were held at the home of a brother, Lee Cantrall, in Springfield Monday afternoon and at the Christian Church in this city at 2 p.m., Rev. Donald J. Finley officiating.
Interment was made in the Hall Cemetery.
