Johnson Funk, Little Gerald Lynn Funk, two-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Roy J. Funk, formerly of Ft. Bayard, died Monday of this week, the victim of leukemia. Death came to the little sufferer, for whom medical science waged a notable battle, at Washington, D.C., where he had been a patient at the Georgetown University hospital since last March. Stricken with the blood-consuming disease for which no cure has been found, Gerald became the object of national attention when, through efforts of the American Red Cross and hundreds of kindly people, he and his parents were flown to Washington on the American Airlines for an experimental treatment with the new miracle drug, cortisone. Object of the treatment was to perform a delaying action against the disease in hopes that a cure could be found before the inroads became too great. For a time it appeared as if the experiment would be a success and the little patient rallied. After a while the treatment became futile and death claimed the victory. As an act of kindness on the part of the Veterans Administration by whom the baby's father was employed at Ft. Bayard, an assignment and transfer was arranged for him in Washington so that the family could be near the scene where the treatments, very expensive, were being given and the youngster comforted by their presence. Hundreds of people, most of whom were not remotely acquainted with the family, sent money contributions and words of comfort to the troubled parents. Friends at Ft. Bayard did everything in their power to aid the worthy cause. Proceeds from one performance of the Bayard Lions Minstrel were given to help pay for treatment. The rallying of aid and friendship and the efforts of the doctors constitute a shining hour in the many sordid ones of current human events. Funeral services for Gerald were held in Washington Wednesday from the W.W. Chambers funeral home in Washington. In addition to the parents, he is survived by a sister, Joyce Funk. Interment was also made in Washington.
