Final Rites Are Held For J. P. Dyar

Funeral services for J. Paul Dyar of Atlanta were held Sunday afternoon from the Barton Funeral Home with the Rev. Ben C. Scarborough officiating.  Mrs. Scarborough sang two favorite hymns with Willis M. Boyd as accompanist.

Mr. Dyar, a native of Adairsville, the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Dyar, was educated in the Adairsville schools and at Mercer University where he was a member of the ATO fraternity and a popular athlete.  The enthusiasm of Mr. Dyar and his brother, Cliff, for baseball made Adairsville one of the best towns in north Georgia for the sport.  Their skill at the game and their vivid personalities drew the greater part of the local population and scores from neighboring towns to watch them in action on the ball diamond.

The survivors include his wife, the former Miss Rachael McEntire of Cartersville; two daughters, Mrs. Lynn Hendrix of Bristol, Tenn., and Mrs. Reed Williams of Cartersville; four sisters, Miss Alice Dyar of Adairsville, Mrs. M. D. Woodson of Chattanooga, Mrs. A. E. Brogdon of Adairsville, and Mrs. C. M. Chamlee of Adairsville; one brother, Cliff Dyar of Marietta, Mrs. J. M. Veach, Miss Eloise Brogdon are his nieces and Jack Brogdon (all of Adairsville), is his nephew.

Serving as pallbearers were Frank King, H. C. McCutchen, Dayton Elrod, G. W. Veach, Seaborn Whatley, Jr., and Mr. Ruff of Atlanta.  Interment was in the Dyar mausoleum in East View Cemetery with the Barton Funeral Home in charge.
