Walter Rector
Walter Edward Rector

While serving in the Army, he was stricken with pneumonia and died. Walter Edward Rector was born December 21, 1896 at Blairstown, and died in the service of his country at Camp McArthur, Waco, TX., on Thursday, October 17, 1918 from pneumonia. His age was 21 years, 9 months, and 26 days. When his call came, he went so willingly. He took his questionnaire and placed himself in Class 1. With a smile, and a loving word to his Mother not to worry about him, he entered the service just six weeks before the final call came. He graduated from Blairstown High School and also attended the State Normal at Warrensburg. At the age of 17 years he began teaching and continued until called into the service. A gloom was cast over the entire community when the first news of his serious illness was received, and the high esteem in which he was held was made manifest by the interest shown from his bedside. Those left to mourn their loss are: father, mother, 4 brothers, 3 sisters, grandfather, grandmother, other relatives and a host of dear friends. A long procession accompanied the remains to the cemetery where a short but impressive service was conducted by Rev. W. C. Hicks of Urich, MO. The many floral offerings were held during the service by 12 flower girls, and afterwards placed on the cedar trimming gave. The Record extends the deepest sympathy to the bereaved family and relatives.
