Lloyd Titterington Dead
Lloyd Titterington died at the Woodcroft hospital in Pueblo last Sunday afternoon. The deceased left Yuma Sunday, October 28, bound for Camp Colt, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, for training in the tank corps. He has had an attack of influenza, and evidently had not fully recovered, as he was ill when he reached camp, and was delirious. Two soldiers were instructed to bring him back to Wray, and they were compelled to strap him to his cot while on the road. He was taken to the Pueblo sanitarium, and died there just two weeks after he left Yuma. The body was taken to Hastings, Iowa, for burial.
