Hank Monk’s Funeral (Continued from Friday). Rev. Davis: “The man who knows his own natural capacities and strives to occupy the position in life most suited to the gifts, however humble, which will result in the fullest measure of usefulness to his fellow man, is a man of brains and honest purpose. How few of us have the good sense or modesty to know our place in life.” Monks remains were taken to the cemetery followed by a long precession of carriages. Pall bearers included ex-Gov. Kinkead, Stephen Gage, Judge W.M. Cary, A.D. Treadway, J.H. Martin and Thomas Condon.
