The many friends and acquaintances of Alfred J. Denison were startled on Monday morning when news reached Lyle that he had passed away, after a few days' illness. It was only last week, Tuesday, that he was taken sick, Wednesday the doctor was called and pronounced it flu. His wife and child were taken ill at the same time and before summoning help he tried to care for the rest of the family. Wednesday, however, he was compelled to stay in bed and from then on his fever ran high and his case became critical. Human skill could not stop the ravages of the disease, and Monday morning he passed on to the great beyond, where there shall be no more parting, or sickness.

Alfred J. Denison was born April 17, 1890, and passed away Monday morning, January 26, 1920. He has always lived in this community with the exception of three years, which he spent in California. On September 7, 1915, he was united in marriage Emma Marie Hanson and settled on their farm in Austin township, where they still resided. To them were born two children, Wilfred, aged 2, and Erwin, three months old. Besides these, he leaves his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Peter H. Denison, four brothers, Axel, George, Herman and Walter, and two sisters, Mrs. Will Evenson and Miss Edna, all of Lyle, to mourn his departure. The funeral, which was private, was held at 2 o'clock Tuesday, January 27. Rev. J. N. Brown of Austin officiating. Interment was made at Rose Creek cemetery.
