Marc Anthony died at 10 o'clock Thursday night at the home of his parents on Madison street, after a short illness of pneumonia, in the twentieth year of his age. The funeral services were conducted at the Church of the Messiah, of which he was a member, Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock by Rev. Granville Allison, after which the interment took place at Maplewood in the presence of sorrowing and sympathizing friends.
Marc Anthony was one of out best young men, and chief among the qualities which made his character a noble one and his life worthy of emulation, were stability, energy, honesty, purity, family devotion and faithfulness to the duties which devolved upon him in business life.
He enjoyed to the fullest extent the confidence and respect of his employer, his associates in business, and a long list of friends. He was idolized at home where affection and gentleness habitually marked his conduct. It was the subject of comment that the burial services were very beautiful and touching.
To the grief-prostrated family the Citizen gives a full measure of tenderest sympathy with the assurance that the earthly sunset of a life like Marc's is but the dawn of a brilliant life eternal.
