Henry STERN, an old and respected resident of Lawton, died last Saturday. He had never been sick in his life until last November, when he suffered a complete breakdown from which he never recovered.
Mr. STERN was born in Germany about 67 years ago and came to Lawton at the age of nineteen years, and with Levi STERN and B. J. Desenberg formed the partnership of L. Stern & Co., which has been doing business there every since. He has served several years on the village board and the school board and was for a long time president of the Southern Michigan Fruit Association. He was a brother of Solomon STERN of Marcellus.
The burial was in Mountain Home Cemetery, Kalamazoo.
