George Delos Gardner: Obituary

The following obituary was published in the Deseret News, 27 July 1922, p. 8. Some of it has been difficult to transcribe, because the microfilm was damaged. However, I have been unable to find this paper in digital format to obtain a better image. For now, this is the best I have.
