CROOKS, Norman J.

The funeral of Mr. Norman J. Crooks took place from his home on Main street last Sunday morning, conducted by Rev. F. H. Havener assisted by Rev. M. H. Keen. The floral offerings were beautiful and showed the esteem of his many friends. Queen's Point lodge I.O.O.F. attended in a body and assisted with the services. Interment was made in Queen's Point Cemetery.
The Board of Directors of the Potomac Milling and Ice Co., in a special meeting, assembled deem it appropriate and right, in the courts of its deliberations, to pay its former associate and coworker, Mr. N. J. Crooks, a last tribute of respect and appreciation. We feel that the business of this company has been greatly benefited by his connection with it since its beginning, in the capacity of a director and member of the Executive Board, and that we, who have worked with him, have profited by his example of industry and application of business acumen to the conduct of the company's affairs. Why a career of such usefulness should be terminated at a point apparently little beyond its meridian is simply another of those mysteries beyond human comprehension. Our most sincere condolence are extended to the family and friends of Mr. Crooks.
