Choked Self With Necktie. Was Found Under Floor

The people of Arlington received a real shock last Saturday when the body of Andrew S. Fullington was found after he had ended his life by choking himself with his necktie.

Fullington had been in a depressed state of mind and had secreted himself under the floor of the home in Arlington where he had committed the deed.

Funeral services were held at the Reckmeyer funeral Chapel on Monday afternoon at 2 o’clock with Rev. Van Valkenburgh officiating and Mrs. Blanche Woods Keller, with Mrs. Alice Newcom playing the accompaniment, furnished the music.

Deceased was born at Waterloo on February 9th, 1896. The family moved to Arlington in 1902, and have since made that their home with the exception of nineteen years spent in South Dakota.

Besides the father with whom he lived, there is no other relative except an uncle of Central City.

The pallbearers were Will Lallman, Raymond Ludwig, Lawrence Echtenkamp, John Hansen, Sr., Henry Kruger and Julius Hass. Interment was made in the Arlington cemetery.
