Guy Bernard AuBuchon, aged 30 years, 3 months and 5 days, passed away at the home of his mother, Mrs. Thomas O'Sullivan, September 9th, 1925, after a brief illness of pneumonia. The funeral services were held Saturday morning at St. Joseph's Catholic Church at Bonne Terre and were conducted by Father Brinkman, after which the body was taken to French Village and a brief service conducted at the grave by Fr. Puetter, assisted by the Norman R. Jackson Post of the American Legion.
The deceased was born in French Village, Missouri, June 4th, 1895. He had made his home for the past six years with his brother, Edward L. AuBuchon, St. Louis, Mo. He enlisted in the U.S. Army, August 25th, 1917 and served over seas with the 471 Areo Squadron, receiving his discharge December, 1918.
Besides his devoted mother, he leaves a step-father, Thomas O'Sullivan, one brother, Edward L. AuBuchon, one step-brother, Marvin O'Sullivan, of St. Louis, and two step-sisters, Mrs. Francis Fowler and Mrs. Ostylee Counts of Bonne Terre, Mo.
Mr. AuBuchon's passing has cast a deep gloom over the city of Bonne Terre and his host of friends there have suffered a tremendous loss in his death. He was a young man of strong character and admired for his sincerity, high courage and fine courtesy. The love and esteem in which he was held was evidenced by the numerous floral offerings and the large number that gathered at the home and church to pay their last sad tribute to him. He was a young man of lofty convictions and true to his convictions and his name will long be a pleasant memory to all who knew him. It was fitting that he should be buried in the quaint little village of his childhood days and where he had so many friends, and where many had been borne before, but few with sincerer honors. Back from war, it's horrors passed, back to his childhood home and to eternal peace.
