    • Newspaper Obituary - December 09, 1931 Pulaski Democrat - Youth Succumbs To Pneumonia - The news of the death of Obie Look, the 21 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Orrin B. Look, of High street, cast a shadow over the entire village among the younger people, last Wednesday night. Obie had been in good health and about his regular activities up to Saturday night, November 28th. He was taken ill Sunday and grew steadily worse until the end came at his home shortly before 6 o'clock Wednesday night. Obie, as his friends all called him, was a youth of much promise. He was of a studious temperament; quiet, unassuming, well mannered and a generally likable chap whom all, old and young, who knew him, admired. He came to Pulaski with his parents when he was a young child, some 18 years ago, from a nearby farm where he was born November 8, 1910. He grew up here and from the beginning of his association with other children he was a favorite among them. He attended the local academy until he finished his junior year in high school, and attained scholastic honors. Determined to get an education he transferred to Watertown for his senior year and graduated from the high school in that city with the class of 1928. In the fall of that year he entered Temple university of Philidelphia, Pa., transferring to Syracuse university at the beginning of his second year. The second semester of that year he returned to Temple. He was pursuing the study of law. Besides his parents, he is survived by two brothers, Clayton W. of Syracuse, and Clarence P. of Earlville; and a sister, Miss Alma Look of this village. Another sister, Dorothy, died about a year ago. The funeral was held at the Methodist church, of which he was a member, last Saturday, Rev. John. W. Warren, pastor, officiating. Burial in Pulaski Cemetery.
