Henry Behe

Information received from relations of the deceased tells of the peaceful death of Henry Behe, an old and respected citizen of Allegheny township. The old gentleman had not been feeling well for some time but was around the house apparently quite well during the day on which his death occurred. When he arose from the supper table that evening the deceased got his pipe, sat down in an easy chair and in two minutes breathed his last. Mr. Behe was aged 74 years, 7 months and 11 days. The deceased leaves the
following children to mourn his death: Charles of Altoona; Luke of Carrolltown; Annie of Nantyglo; Clara of Gallitzin; Katie of Nantyglo; Mary of Allegheny township; Alice at home. After high mass the remains were laid to rest in St. Michael's cemetery at Loretto. Mr. Behe was a devout Roman Catholic.

Oh, could we find sorrow that's keener than this
In all of the world so wide,
When a father so gentle, so loving and kind
Was suddenly called from our side.

Dear God, in His wisdom, has called him away
From the cares of this world so wildt
But the cords of love, they are hard to break
That bind the father and child.

Tenderly, now, let us lay him to rest
In the grave where no cares ever come
Hoping sweet rest may be granted to him
In the light of his heavenly home.
