William Frederick Divitz

    WAS SICK ONLY AN HOUR.

    SUDDEN DEATH OF WILLIAM F. DIVITZ OF LEONARDO.

    He Was Taken sick While Doing Duty as Night Watchman on Melin [sic] A. Rice's Farm and He Died Shortly After He Returned Home.

    William Frederick Divitz of Leonardo, night watchman on Melvin A. Rice's farm at that place, died suddenly Tuesday night of last week. He had been laid up with diabetes, but he recovered sufficiently to return to work about a month ago. Last Tuesday night he was taken sick shortly after he went to work and he was sent home in Mr. Rice's auto mobile. He died about an hour later.

    Mr. Divitz was a man of many sterling qualities and his death is mourned by a large circle of friends and acquaintances. He was a native of Germany. He was 69 years old and was twice married. He is survived by a wife and five children. The children are Mrs. Amzi Thorne and Harry, Frederick and Leon Divitz of Leonardo and Mrs. William A. Poling of Keyport.

    The funeral was held Sunday afternoon at the house and the sermon was preached by Rev. Joseph H. Schaeffer of Atlantic Highlands. The Leonardo fire company and the Odd Fellows' lodge of Atlantic Highlands, of which organizations Mr. Divitz was a member, sent floral pieces and large delegations to the funeral. The burial was at Bay View cemetery at Atlantic Highlands.
