Wm. Hutfless Dead

Old Settler Living Near Plainview Called by Death.

Another one of the old settlers and good men of Pierce county has been called to the other world--William Hutfless--who passed away at his farm home a short distance from Plainview on Monday morning about 11 o'clock.  Mr. Hutfless had been in failing health with stomach trouble for more than a year, and although he was known not to be enjoying the best of health, yet the announcement of his death came as a great shock and surprise to his many friends.  Mr. Hutfless was a splendid type of man and was held in high esteem by all who had the pleasure of making his acquaintance.

The funeral was held Wednesday afternoon at the Lutheran church in Plainview and many friends gathered there to pay their last tribute of respect to their dead friend and one of the old settlers of Pierce county.

Mr. Hutfless was a brother-in-law of Carl Hoffman of Pierce and he and his family visited at the Hoffman home many times in years past.  Mr. and Mrs. Hoffman as well as several other people from this vicinity went to Plainview yesterday to attend the funeral.  It is with sorrow that the Leader chronicles the passing of this good man, and we join with many other friends in extending heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved relatives in their hour of sorrow.
