C. A. Caldwell, one of the most highly esteemed and beloved residents of the Nebraska Masonic Home, died this morning at the home very suddenly shortly after he had arisen. While Mr. Caldwell has not been well for some time he had not been feeling unusually poorly and a few moments after he had arisen this morning he was stricken and despite all that medical skill could do he passed away as the result of the attack of heart trouble. Mr. Caldwell was one of the oldest residents of the home in point of residence as he has been here since February 19. 1917, when he with his wife arrived here to spend their declining years in this beautiful home for the aged and sick.
The wife preceded him in death in July 1929. .
Clarence A. Caldwell was born at Republic, Ohio, April 26, 1851, and has spent his greater number of years in Nebraska where he resided at Crete and Holdrege for many years before coming to this city to make his home. Mr. Caldwell was a member of Crete lodge No. 37, A. F. & A. M.. and also the R. A. M. at Crete and the Knights Templar at Holdrege. He was much interested in the work of his lodges and had been a leading and active figure in the work of Masonry in his old home communities. Mr. Caldwell was also a musician of note and delighted as long as his health would permit to enjoy band and orchestra work and his greatest treat was to hear a musical entertainment which he appreciated to the utmost. The deceased is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Henry Schmidt of Omaha, and one son, Dr. A. D. Caldwell of Brunning, Nebraska. The body will be taken to Menlo, Iowa, for burial beside that of the wife as soon as word is received from the family.
