 Dyckman, Robert W. 1886- 1935 Morris Obituary

Robert W. Dyckman Dies
After Illness of Over Year

Morris, Dec. 22---Robert W. Dyckman, proprietor of the Morris inn for the past eight years, died at his home on Main street early Thursday morning from the effects of a shock, which he suffered last week. He had been an invalid for over a year.
Robert Willard Dyckman, one of the nine children of Law and Janette (Nichols) Dyckman, was born December 19, 1886, in North Harpersfield, where he spent his boyhood.
As a young man he became interested in the management of restaurants and during his life successfully conducted several in Ballston Spa, Oneonta and Sidney, before purchasing the Morris inn.
Mr. Dyckman was united in marriage March 27, 1921, with Miss Hazel Mead of Gilbertsville, who survives him and who has faithfully cared for him during his long illness. To them was born one son, Robert, Jr., now 12 years of age.
The deceased was a member of the Jefferson Masonic lodge, of Leila chapter,
O. E. S., in Jefferson, and also of the Elks lodge in Norwich. He was a genial man and with a markedly keen sense of humor. He made many friends, among whom he will be greatly missed.
Immediate surviving relatives are the widow and son; two sisters, Mrs. Lois Bassage of Rochester and Mrs. Elnora Simmons of Oneonta; also several nephews and nieces, to whom much sympathy will be extended
The funeral services, conducted by Rev. Dr. C. E. Vermilya of the Methodist church, were held at the home Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Interment was in the new part of Hillington cemetery.

Addendum:  I estimate his year of death as 1935 since his son was born in 1923 and he was 12 when his father died.

Son Robert born 1923 and died 2003. Buried at Hillington cemetery.
