The funeral of Thomas F. Callan was held last Friday morning in St. Aloysius Catholic Church at the Summit. It was the largest ever held in that vicinity, the church being crowded.
A solemn high mass of requiem was said with the Rev. Father Francis Hertzog of Pittsburg, a school friend of the deceased at St. Francis College at Loretto, as the celebrant. The Rev. Father James Gaven (sic), pastor of St. Aloysius parish, was deacon; the Rev. Father Thomas Ryan of Lilly, sub-deacon, and the Rev. Father Joseph Farren of the local orphanage was master of ceremonies. The Rev. Father Graven preached the sermon.
