Notes for John Stoop: OBITUARY John Stoop - died, 08 October 1885 Newark Daily Advocate - Newark, Ohio dated, 15 October 1885 OBITUARY Again has the Angel Death visited our community, and removed from this earth, one of our best, and most highly esteemed citizens, in the person of John Stoop. Mr. Stoop was born in Bucks County, Penna., on the 25th day of June, 1811, and died on the 8th day of October, 1885, after a short but painful illness of about ten days of duration, which was borne without a murmur, and although he did not realize that the end was so near, he did not fear death, for death to this good, humble, patient servant of God, meant life everlasting to his immortal soul. Our old friend was certainly a most exemplary Christian, not only in word, but in deed and truth, and was ever ready and willing to do all he could do to serve his Master, and to aid others to come to Jesus; and now, at the ripe old age, he has heard those blessed, and comforting words of our Father: “Well done thy good and faithful servant, enter into the joys prepared for you.” The fever of life is over, he is at rest, a rest that remaineth for the people of God, and what a sweet consolation this hope must be to his bereaved family- a wife and two children (both of whom are grown) who are left. Weep not dear friends for your loved one, for your loss is his eternal gain, do not sorrow, as St. Paul says as one without hope-but look forward to the meeting of this aged husband and father, where there will be no more sorrow, no more parting, sickness or death-and remember that the Lord has promised to take care of the fatherless and widows. At an early age Mr. Stoop embraced religion and united with the Baptist Church, and has lived a consistent life, and in good fellowship with that church ever since. His funeral services were conducted by the Rev. Dr. Cheny, of the Baptist Church of Newark, who chose for his text the 21st verse of the first chapter of the first book of Philippians-his remarks were a great source of comfort and consolation to the bereaved family-who have the sympathy of this entire community, in this their sad affliction. “Asleep in Jesus, blessed sleep from which none ever wakes to weep.” A FRIEND
