A sense of deep sorrow prevailed throughout the community Friday morning, Jan 1 when the word came of the passing of Harry ROONEY at the Patterson Memorial Hospital at Belleville at 8:30 o'clock. His death was accidental due to asphyxiation in the MILLER home in Belleville, KS, the night of Dec 28, caused from fumes from a gas furnace. George MILLER, as associate in the ROONEY Motor Co, in Belleville was dead when they were found by friends Tuesday noon, Dec 29. Harry, who was unconscious when found was taken to the Patterson Memorial Hospital in Belleville, where Doctors BEIDEWELL and MUNFORD worked tirelessly over him until he passed away Friday morning, never having regained consciousness. Other medical advise including that of Dr. MAYO, was obtained but nothing further could be done. In the story of his life, Harry Edward ROONEY was born at Haddam, KS May 22, 1914 and departed this life Jan 1, 1943 at the age of 28 years, 7 months and 19 days. He was the seventh child of William T. and Otilla ROONEY.
After his graduation from the Haddam public schools, Harry attended St. Benedict's in Atchinson one year, then Kansas State College at Manhattan, where he was a member of the Phi Deltha Theata fraternity. More than any of the other ROONEY children, Harry has been identified with the Haddam community and in recent months the towns of Belleville and Brewster. After college he formed a partnership with his brother George, to conduct the ROONEY Motor Co. car agency at Haddam and Belleville. Later they acquired a ranch at Brewster, Kansas.
Harry was interested in aviation, he had piloted planes and tried repeatedly during the past year to enlist in the Air Corps, but was unable to pass the physical examinations, due to defective eyesight and an asthmatic condition. Therefore,. He stayed home to manage their various undertakings while his brother George has been in the service of his country the past year.
Harry was one of a family of ten children: Anne, director of Town School, a private day boarding school for girls, Lake Shore Drive, Chicago, Illinois; Mabel, Mrs. James J. CAHILL, Forrest Hills, Long Island, New York; Mary, dietitian, Charity Hospital, New Orleans, Louisiana; Wm. T. Jr., rancher, Deerfield, KS.; father of W. T. the third and Linda Ann, only nephew and niece of Harry; Helen, artist, Dobbs Ferry, N.Y. ; George, 1st Lieutenant, Army Camp Beaurgard, LA; Harry deceased Jan 1, 1943; Paul Senior Lieutenant, U.S. Army fighter plane duty; Frederick born Dec 10, 1917, passed away eleven days later; Geraldine, Mrs. Donald SIMPSON, Cheyenne Wells, Colorado
The death of Harry was the first one in the W. T. ROONEY family since that of baby Frederick twenty-five years ago. Harry with his brothers and sisters and close friends enjoyed gathering in the family home. There was a tie of affection that held the family close together. Now, something of the joy of living has gone from the family circle, and while no doubt they will be together again. Harry's passing will leave a vacant place which will be filled only by a beautiful memory of him. The community suffers a loss in his passing, as well as the youngsters on the street, who always knew they could depend on Harry. Harry was a member of the Haddam Masonic and Odd Fellows Orders. Services were held at 2:30 Tuesday afternoon, Jan 5 at the Methodist church in Haddam. They were simple, with the reading of the Episcopah ritual by Rev. NEWTON of Clay Center, KS, with one song, "My Task" by Tom BROWN, tenor of Belleville, KS. He was one of Harry's close friends. Burial was in the family plot in Haddam cemetery.
