Cecil C. DeBardelaben
Died After Influenza

Members of the local lodge of Elks held impressive funeral services at Wann’s chapel over the body of Cecil C. DeBardelaben, well-known Chattanoogan, who died at Erlanger hospital yesterday morning, after a brief illness of influenza followed by pneumonia. The body was sent to Montgomery, Ala., former home of the deceased, for burial. It was accompanied by R. P. DeBardelaben, aged father of the deceased, and Mrs. Ruby Vaughn, a sister, who were called from their home in Montgomery to Chattanooga by news of the illness of their son and brother.

Attorney W. H. Cummings paid an eloquent tribute to the memory of the deceased. He said in part: “Our deceased brother was charitable to the core; he was kind and gentle and lovable. All who were so fortunate to know him loved him. We will miss him from our lodge. There were no dull moments when he was around. He scattered sunshine along life’s pathway, preferring roses to the thorns. My humble tribute to his memory finds its source in a sad heart that is swollen with grief at his untimely demise. We will all miss him in our home, but we will never forget him.”

Cecil C. DeBardelaben, affectionately known to Chattanoogans as “Deep Springs,” was 39 years old, having been born at Autaugaville, Ala., where his father, R. P. DeBardelaben, still resides. His youth and early manhood were spent at Montgomery, Ala. In 1906 he moved to Chattanooga. For a number of years Mr. DeBardelaben was connected with the J. W. Kelly company, and from this business association arose the nickname of “Deep Springs.” During the entire time Mr. DeBardelaben had lived in this city, he had been prominent in social and charitable work of the Elks lodge and at all minstrel entertainments he excelled in black-face comedy.

During the last twelve months Mr. DeBardelaben had been a business partner of T. A. Pickett in the gents’ furnishings business at No. 7 East Eighth Street.

Two sisters, Mrs. F. E. Vaughn, of Montgomery, Ala., and Mrs. Callie Pearl Reese, of Clio, Ala., and two brothers, Woody Waldo DeBardelaben, of Wetumpka, Fla., and D. H. DeBardelaben, of El Paso, Tex., survive. Three cousins, H. L. DeBardelaben, Mrs. Lee Dearing, and Eugene O’Conner, are residents of Chattanooga.
