Obituary – Edgar Eagen
East Liverpool Tribune
It was a sad message that conveyed the tidings in this city yesterday (December 13, 1903) of the sudden death of Edgar Eagen, formerly a popular young man of this city but who for the past year has been employed by the John A. Roebting & Sons Co., in Trenton, N. J. The message was received by the parents of the young man, Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Eagen, of West Fourth street.
About five weeks ago Mr. Eagen was taken ill, and a short time later it was announced that he was suffering from appendicitis. The patient was then residing at the home of his brother, Elmer Eagen, in Trenton, and on the advice of the physicians he was removed to the St. Francis hospital. An operation was performed and for some time it was considered that the patient would recover , but a week ago hemorrhages set in and continued until death relieved the sufferer Sunday evening.
Besides his father and mother in this city deceased is survived by three brothers, Elmer of Trenton, H. Homer of Newcommerstown, and Ensel of this city. Funeral services will be held at the home of the brother in Trenton and the body will then be brought to this city. The remains will be buried from the First Christian church Wednesday afternoon. Interment will be made in Riverview cemetery.
Mr. Eagen was a pleasant gentleman, possessing a kind and sympathetic nature. He was honest and industrious, and was rapidly making his way in life. His well known capabilities won for him the respect of his employers and all others with whom he came in contact, while his light hearted, genial nature make his a welcome presence wherever he appeared.
