Douglas Budget - May 15, 1941A cablegram brought word Saturday of the death of Russell Benning, 25, younger brother of Mrs. Louis Gale of Douglas. He passed away in a naval hospital a victim of cerebral meningitis. Later word came that he had been buried at sea, as was his expressed wish should his death come a long distance from his home.
Rev. Gale officiated at Benning's wedding at Long Beach, Calif., last summer while the Gale's were on the coast attending a church gathering.
