Judge Attaway

A Notable Figure removed from the Community by death.

Judge Shelby Attaway died on yesterday morning, at his father’s home in the western suburb, he having gone there only a few days previous. Judge Attaway has been in feeble health for a year or more, but he, like his friends and some of his physicians, thought his malady might vanish and soon leave him strong physically. Thus hopeful, he was also cheerful up to near the hour of his demise, when he became irrational.

Judge Attaway was about thirty six years of age. He was a man of strong character, with honesty and sincerity stamped in every phase of his nature. He was courageous and of firm connections and truly loyal as a friend.

He was elected judge of the city court over six years ago and filled the position with dignity and signal ability. Had he lived, higher honors surely awaited him. He leaves a wife and one bright baby boy to mourn his death.
