THEODORE RICKSHER

Theodore RICKSHER, born and reared in Fairfield and for years a resident of this city, died Saturday night at 10:50 oclock in a sanitarium in Albuquerque N.M. where he had been taking treatment since June.

The body will arrive here tomorrow at 1:20 p.m. over the Burlington, accompanied by the widow, Frank RICKSHER and Mr. and Mrs. William H. RICKSHER who were with him at the time of his death. Dr. Charles RICKSHER, who recently moved from here to Middletown Conn., will arrive here tomorrow morning for the funeral.

Services will be held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Frank RICKSHER, 806 South Main street, Wednesday afternoon at 3 oclock and will be in charge of Dr. Gilbert Voorhles (sic - Voorhies) of the First Presbyterian church. Interment will be in Evergreen cemetery.

Mr. RICKSHER was forty-three years old. He passed his boyhood and early manhood here, attending the public school and Parsons college. He went to the state university from Parsons and took his degree there. He became associated with the Automatic Telephone company in Chicago, and in their service went to England and a number of South American countries to direct the installation of plants.

When the United States entered the World war, he joined the army and was a member of the Eighty-eight division, seeing service in France. His health broke following the war, and his condition became serious two years ago. He married Miss Irene KESSLER of Baraboo, Wis., two years ago January 10.
