Beloved Citizen of Gadsden Dies Away from Home -- Funeral Unannounced.

L. L. Herron, one of the best loved citizens of Gadsden died yesterday at Springfield, Pa., where he had been doing government work since June 1st.

The message announcing his death arrived last night and was filed at Springfield after 11 o'clock. 

He must have died late in the afternoon or early night.

The remains are on the way to Gadsden and the funeral arrangements will probably not be made until tomorrow. The burial will be at Forest cemetery, probably Sunday.

Mr. Herron was 60 years old and is survived by his wife and the following children: Mrs. James Lamon, of Washington, C. C.; Mrs. W. F. Foard, of Knoxville, Tenn.; Mrs. W. P. Kinney, Villa Rica, Ga.; Mrs. Fred Woolbright, Atlanta, Ga., and Miss Pauline Herron, of Gadsden and Scott Herron, of Akron, Ohio.

He was born and reared at Spartanburg, S. C. His family was reared in this county and city and he was widely known throughout this entire section as a singing teacher. He was a carpenter by trade.

Mr. Herron was a Mason, a churchman, and a good, conscientious, Christian gentleman. He was as upright and honest as the days are long and no man was more respected by the people of this city.

Mrs. Herron reached his bedside before death, which was due to pneumonia.

New Paper Obit

Luther Lee Herron's obit. Note: considering that Luther Lee was in Pennsylvania for work, (one of the worst-hit states by the Spanish Flu) and his passing of "pneumonia" in September at such a young age, I believe his death was actually caused by the Spanish Flu. (lh)
