In Memory

The death angel visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Dye, July 5, 1923 and called from them their darling baby boy, aged 4 years, 6 months old. He was sick two weeks and had all the care hands could give him. He leaves to mourn his death a father, mother, sister and many relatives and friends. Rev. Floyd Hans preached his funeral at the Chestnutridge church and his little body was laid to rest in the Schupbach cemetery.

His body is sleeping ‘neath the sod; All trials of life ceased ore the path he trod

He is resting from his labors here, No more heartaches or sorrows to bear.

In heaven where all is peace and love There his spirit winged its flight as the dove;

For loved-ones, relatives and friends he waits there, They too, may the joys and bliss of heaven share.   His Aunt, Mrs. Joe Payne

These severe affliction not from the ground arise, But often time celestial benedictions Assume this dark disguise.

[Note: no SSDI found]

            Jerry Dye, found guilty by jury in January of killing his brother, Richard, in 2001, was sentenced March 4 to three years in prison for armed criminal action and one year of involuntary manslaughter. He was fined $500 for a conviction of unlawful use of a weapon. The sentences will run concurrently, and Dye received credit, for time already served in the state penitentiary

            Dye’s attorney, Gail Fredrick, told Judge James Eiffert that an appeal was unlikely.

            Cleek said that the sentence what he’s expected though he would have liked the sentences to run consecutively.

            But the dead man’s common-law wife, Eileen Akers, Oklahoma, was distraught following the sentence, calling Dye’s court process “a mockery of the justice system.”

            “In Oklahoma, smaller crime gets (three years of jail). He took a big part of our life,” she said, referring to herself and 14-year-old daughter, Carly.

            She added that the family land in Missouri had been forfeited during the nearly four-year lawsuit. “Richard is gone and our family legacy is gone.”

            Cleek said he talked to Akers following the sentencing and told her there was nothing more she could have done to aid in Jerry Dye’s prosecution.
