Donald K. Reeser, 22 died of self-imposed asphyxiation sometime during the night of Wednesday February 25, or the morning of Thursday February 26.
State police who investigated the suicide said they "were satisfied" as to the "means of death". Dr. Clarence R. Martin, Lycoming County coroner, said no inquest would be held.
The police were called at about 5 pm yesterday and asked to investigate a stopped station wagon on a dirt road, about a quarter of a mile off of Bloomingrove Road and approximately two miles north of the city limits. The call came from George E. Allen, of proctor Star Route, whose two daughters, Georgette, 10, and Ruth Clara, seven saw the sation wagon both on the way to school and on the way home.
Cpl. Alex A. Rudville and Pfc. Joseph Maloney said that Mr. Reeser had evidently attached a three-foot length of hose to the exhaust of the station wagon and placed the open end in the rear of the vehicle. Mr. Reeser was behind the steering wheel, and the ignition was turned on when state police arrived at the scene.
Surviving are his mother, Mrs. Alice Reeser, of Montoursville, and two brothers, Joe R., of Binghamton, NY and Robert, of Montoursville. Services will be at 2 pm Monday at the funeral home. Friends may call at the funeral home from 7 to 9 o'clock Sunday evening.
