Mr. Stiff, who resided at the Lazy Fox Ranch, was born September 15,
1877, in Bloomington, Md. In 1904 he married Daisy Thompson of Brillian,
O., and moved to Mingo Junction, O., where he operated a grocery. Later
he worked for the Pennsylvania Railroad until he moved to Orange,
Calif., in 1923. Upon his retirement in 1949 from the H. O. Ehlen
Plumbing Co., he and Mrs. Stiff moved to Yucca Valley, Calif. In
November, 1954, he and Mrs. Stiff observed their 50th wedding
anniversary. They moved to Wickenburg in 1954.

He had long been active in the Presbyterian Church as an elder and a
member of the church choir.

Surviving are the widow; a daughter, Mrs. Clinton E. Fox of Wickenburg;

Presbyterian Church at a later date.
