Obituary of Robert H. Patrick (abt. 1903 - 1963)

I'm continuing to publish the old newspaper clippings in my grandmother's collection. I had a great suggestion in the comments from my last post to type up the text so it gets picked up by search engines. May I say - what a great idea! And may I say, DUH, how could I not have thought of that? :-) So later I'll be updating the posts I've already done with text.

Anyway, today's obituary is for Robert H. PATRICK. He was the brother of my great-Aunt Mazie's husband, John Howard PATRICK.

The obituary is below. All identifying information was trimmed off of it, and the handwritten date is in my grandmother's handwriting.

Obituary text:
