Funeral services were held yesterday afternoon, for John Gruber, 71, known to everyone in Fullerton as "Popcorn John", who was fatally injured about 9 p. m. Saturday when he was struck while pushing his wagon to his home by a car driven by Charlie DeBoer of Buena Park. The accident occurred on the corner of Jacaranda Pl. and Highland Ave. According to a report turned in by DeBoer, Gruber was struck as the car apparently backed into the wagon as DeBoer was leaving a parking place on Jacaranda pl. Gruber was taken to the Fullerton General hospital where he died four hours later from a basal fracture of the skull, which was caused by the impact , which knocked him to the pavement. Earl Abbey, county coroner, is investigating details of the accident. Gruber leaves his widow, Mrs. Elizabeth Gruber of Fullerton, a son, Addison Gruber of Fullerton and three daughters: Mrs. Mamie Jenkins of Anaheim, Mrs. Nellie Skaggs and Mrs. Florence Peterson of Fullerton; seven grandchildren and three brothers and one sister in the east. He was a resident of Fullerton fifteen years. Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon from the McAulay and Suters mortuary. Interment was in Loma Vista cemetery.
