Mr. Springer was born in Bristol, R.I., learned the carpenter's trade when young and he worked at it over 40 years, 29 of which have been passed in this city. He has been a useful and industrious citizen and nobly fulfilled his duty while in life. Connecting himself with the St. Paul's M.E. Church, on Bank Street, many years ago, he has gone thru life as one who forgot not the things unseen and eternal, and left behind a memory that is pleasant to his brethren of the church and the large family he leaves behind him, consisting of a widow, five sons and three daughters, who revere his memory and mourn his loss. They all know where to look for consolation, and as the days go by will forget not the example he has left for their profit, not forgetting that in the Father's house are many mansions prepared for the blest.
