Commissioner Warren Dies Suddenly Friday

Mr. William C. Warren, age 52, died rather suddenly at his home in Eastville about 10 o'clock last Friday morning. He had worked the day previous and was taken ill early Friday morning, paralysis ensuing, from which he survived only a few hours after being strickened.

Probably the largest crowd to ever attend a funeral in that section assembled at Ray Sunday afternoon to do honor to the memory of the deceased. Rev. W.F. Lunsford conducting the services, after which interment followed in the churchyard.

Surviving Mr. Warren are his wife and two daughters, Miss Lillie May Warren and Mrs. Charlie May Jones, and quite a number of less close relatives and just thousands of friends throughout this entire section of the state.

Mr. Warren was an associate member of the county board of roads and revenue and to this trust he brought constant thought and high-mindedness in the discharge of every duty. Privately and publicly he was known and honored for his true worth and in his going away Oconee has lost one of her best citizens.

To his grief-stricken widow and other loved ones the sympathy of all is extended in fullest measure.
