      MERCHANT OF EARLY TIMES PASSES AWAY

      H. K. Van den Bosch Dies Tuesday at age of 84; Many Survivors

      “Hoped to vote for Hoover”

      H. K. Van den Bosch, veteran clothing merchant of the city, died at his home Tuesday night after only a day’s confinement to his bed. He was 84 years old and has lived in this city since a lad of 12 years, when he came to this country from the Netherlands with his father, the founder of the large Van den Bosch family which has been so well known in Western Michigan.

      Mr. Van den Bosch had enjoyed excellent health during his well rounded life and Monday visited the store which has been in the hands of his sons Charles and Bert Van den Bosch, for many years.

      Mr. Van den Bosch and his brother Thomas founded the Big Store in 1884 and continued in partnership until the death of Thomas many years ago when the survivor turned the executive part of the business over to his sons. He, however never lost his interest and each day came to the business house although as the years passed he took a less active part in it.

      Always a family man, his chief delight was his garden and it was said of him that he could make anything grow. A deeply religious man, he was a member of the Second Christian Reformed Church when he held office as an elder and deacon.

      In politics he was a staunch Republican and took a keen interest in the present election, advising his neighbors only the day before his death to vote a straight Republican ticket. He had expected to vote and Tuesday discussed the status of the election with his sons, although he realized he would never go to the polls again.

      He is survived by the following children: Mrs. C. C. Boomgaard, Mrs. Harry Zeldenrust, Mrs. John Dirkse, and Charles and Bert Van den Bosch of this city; Mrs. Henry Vos, Grand Rapids; Miss Harriet Van den Bosch, Englewood, NJ; and T. Connell Van den Bosch, Onarga, Ill., and 10 grandchildren.

      Funeral services will be held from the home, 509 Lafayette Street, Friday, at 2:00pm with Rev. R.J. Karsten officiating. Burial will be in Lake Forest Cemetery.

      Those of his children who are living out of this city will return for the funeral services. Friends are asked to kindly omit flowers.
