After a life of toil and sacrifice, about a quarter of a century of which was spent in the gospel ministry, Rev. A. C. WILEY has passed away at sixty-three years of age. The immediate and final cause was cancer on the liver, from which he was a patient sufferer for the past four months, his health having been in a failing condition for a number of years.
Brother WILEY had lived a life of humble yet sincere faith and piety and, as a pastor, has been universally loved and followed by the flocks he has shepherded.
Brother WILEY's first pastorate was in the Tioga River Christian Conference, where his faithful labors led to his being called to the pastorate at Newark, N.Y. Subsequently he served the churches at Searsburg, Trumbulls Corners, and Plainville, N.Y. At the latter place he operated for three years after closing his pastorate there, then he was recalled to the Trumbulls Corners church and undertook a work which proved too difficult for his strength. After his last illness came upon him he tried repeatedly to occupy his pulpit, but had to submit to the ruling of his Lord and King.
Besides Mrs. WILEY, his wife, one son, three daughters, and three grandchildren, he leaves an aged mother, a brother, one or more sisters, and other relatives. His departure is keenly felt by these and by a host of people in the communities where he has lived and labored.
As a young man Brother WILEY served his country as a soldier in one of the expeditions which the Government sent into the far West. He was also a member of the I.O.F.M. Numerous members of his local lodge at Baldwinsville, N.Y., journeyed by auto to Newark where they joined with the lodge of that place in conducting the services at the grave.
The writer would like to have given a fuller and more perfect account of the life and labors of the departed brother, but Mrs. WILEY's health is delicate and many relatives and friends were at the elder daughter's home where the services were held, so that complete and accurate information could not well be obtained. His remains lie peacefully at rest in the beautiful cemetery at Newark, N.Y., where is located the first of the New York Central Christian churches which he so faithfully served. He made all arrangements for his funeral, and the fact that the writer was chosen to officiate on that occasion is the best possible testimony of the friendship which years of labor in the common cause have strengthened.
