Funeral services for Max J. Packard, who died suddenly Tuesday in Decatur, Ill., will be held Friday at 2 p.m. in the Rosman-Uehling-Kinzer chapel. The Rev. H.A. Studebaker will officiate and burial will be in the Shirland cemetery.

Mr. Packard was found dead Tuesday afternoon by a maid at the hotel where he lived in Decatur. He had given a blood donation at a hospital during the afternoon, and apparently he went directly from the hospital to his room and died in his sleep.

Formerly a guard at the Ingersoll Milling Machine company in Rockford, Mr. Packard had driven for a cab company there, and had sold roofing material. He had arrived in Decatur about ten days ago to look for work.

Mr. Packard was born June 1, 1884 in Shirland and spent most of his life there and in Rockford. He was married in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., June 10, 1907.

Survivors are his wife, Mrs. Eva Packard, who lives on a farm just outside of Beloit; a son, Charles, Cambridge, Wis.; two daughters, Mrs. Vera Kenseth, Edgerton and Mrs. Violet Hutter, Terre Haute, Ind.: eight grandchildren; a sister, Mrs. Iva Wager, Florida, and three brothers, Uri, Rockford, Rex, Florida, and Leo, Milwaukee."
