Obituary: In Memory: Otha Franklin Springer was born February 18th, 1905, and departed this life to be with Jesus October 29th, 1925. His stay on earth was the short while of only 20 years, 8 months and 11 days. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. John D. Springer, was born in Carroll County where he lived with his parents until the age of 13 years, then with his parents, moved to this country where he lived until his death. At the early age of 15 years he gave his heart and life to God. A little later he united with the Missionary Baptist Church at Mt. Gilead and there until Jesus called him home he lived a beautiful Christian life. No better boy can this old world afford than Otha was--an obedient son, a loving brother and a friend to everyone. The body was laid to rest in the Pleasant Hill Cemetery and on account of the bad weather only short funeral services were held. ---Felix Ivy
