      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, July 30, 1964 Sandy Creek News - Sandy Creek, New York - Tragic Death of VanBrocklin Baby Saddens Cottagers - Seber Shores - Sympathy is extended to Mr. and Mrs. Barry VanBrocklin in the loss of their baby son, Joseph Eric VanBrocklin whose tragic death occurred shortly after noon, Monday, July 27, 1964 at the family home on Seber Shore Drive. The funeral was held Wednesday afternoon at the Foster Funeral Home, Pulaski, with the Rev. Nelson Reppert, pastor of Richland Methodist Church, officiating. Burial was in Richland cemetery. According to investigating officials, Mrs. VanBrocklin had placed the baby in his crib for a nap shortly after noon, and had taken her other two sons outside with her while she mowed the lawn. Going back into the house after a little to check whether he had fallen asleep yet, she discovered him hanging by his neck on the crib. She rushed frantically outside to summon aid from a neighbor, John Wilder, who was working nearby in his garden. Dr. Burch K. Reed was called. Death was attributed to strangulation. It was believed that the little fellow had managed to get a belt from the bureau next his bed and his neck had become entangled in it in some manner. He was born November 12, 1962 in Oswego, the son of Barry and Patricia Trumble VanBrocklin. Surviving besides his parents are two brothers, Jeffrey and Robert; grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth VanBrocklin of Redfield, Ruben Gregory, Pulaski and Mrs. Oleta Trumble, Richland; great-grandparents, and several aunts and uncles.
