Gladwin County Obituary/Death Notice
Arthur Looker

   Arthur Looker, Gladwin township boy, who answered the call of Uncle Sam by enlisting in the navy, Dec. 6, 1917, died at Great Lakes Naval Hospital after a brief illness of measles and pneumonia. He was born in Hamilton township, Clare county, Nov. 2, 1898, where he resided until Nov. 1915, when he moved with his parents to Gladwin township, Gladwin county, and remained there until the dated of his enlistment, when he left home and loved ones to defend our beloved country. He is survived by father, mother, four sisters, three brothers, and a host of friends, who remain to mourn his loss, but which was his eternal gain.

   Arthur made many friends and was held in the highest esteem among them and a vacancy was felt in his home neighborhood when he went to be a "Boy in Blue." Funeral services were held in McClure church at 2:30, followed by interment in McClure cemetery.

   We loved him, yes, we loved him. But angels loved him more, And they sweetly called him To yonder shining shore; The golden gates were open. A gentle voice said, "Come!" And with farewells unspoken. He calmly entered home.---Contributed by a friend.
