    • Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, July 27, 1932 Pulaski Democrat - G. A. Penney Dies in Colorado - Lived here 45 years ago - We copy the following from the Center Post-Dispatch of Center, Colorado, under date of July 8th. The subject of the sketch was a former resident of Pulaski before going west 45 years ago, and was at the time an employee in the plant of Charles Tollner. He was a cousin of Mrs. E. Morgan Marvin and Mrs. William Stark, now of this village. The Post-Dispatch says: "G. A. Penney, well known and progressive stock man and rancher, of Center for many years, passed away at 4:30 o'clock Friday afternoon at the Monte Vista hospital. He had not been in rugged health for several years, but was only critically ill the past week and the immediate cause of his death was due to heart trouble and other complications. "Mr. Penney was among the early pioneers, having gone to Colorado in 1885, over 45 years ago. He and his wife first settled near Saguache on homestead land. Later in 1906 the family moved near Center where he has been engaged extensively in stock, raising and farming. "In spite of illness he was uncomplaining, patient and kind and was known to be a man of quiet and unaffected demeanor, honest, industrious, unobtrusive and of unquestioned integrity. "Mr. Gilford A. Penney was born at Henderson, New York, November 7, 1858 and departed this life July 1, 1932 at the age of 73 years, 7months, and 24 days. His childhood and youth was spent in New York. "He was united in marriage, September 24, 1884 to Rose Adel Upton and to this union five children were born, one of whom, Ella Penney Klein, preceded her father in death, August 29, 1909. Besides his wife, Mr. Penney leaves to mourn his going his four children, one son, Harry L. Penney, and three daughters, Grace S. Stewart, Blanche Pearl Fyock, and Eva Maude Penney; also five grandchildren, besides other relatives and loving friends. "Funeral services were held at the Methodist church, Sunday, July 3 at 2 p.m. conducted by the Rev. H. M. Templin, assided by L. D. Hammock. Music was furnished by the Hammock-Templin quarter, with Mrs. Chas. Dillion at the piano. Burial was at the Sauguache cemetery beside the resting place of his daughter. Many of his former associates throughout the valley came to pay their respect to his memory. "We can truthfully say with the poem. "A faithful one from us is gone, A voice we loved is stilled, A place is vacant in the home, Which can never be filled.'"
