California Obituaries - 1899 - Victor J. Tolley

A Very Sad Bereavement

The death of Victor J. Tolley, at Alameda last Monday, was a sad and startling blow to his many friends in this city. This was his native town and early home. He left here when quite young, with his father's family and resided at Tuscarora, Nevada. Later he resided in Sacramento where he was Inspector of plumbing, a business in which he was a thorough expert. Having impaired his health, as he believed by violent bicycle exercise, he returned to this city about one year ago. He set up business and followed his trade during the Summer. His health still declining, in the fall he went to Alameda. He was thrity-eight years of age and a member of the Masonic fraternity. His wife and four children survive him. No one will miss him more than his father who was with him here during the past Summer. But for all his people and many friends his death is a sad bereavement.
