Death has claimed another of our former townsmen in the person of Luther W Minnich, of Philadelphia, who for the past six weeks has been lying ill at the home of his uncle, Dr. E. J. Miller, of Everett, and at which place he died Tuesday morning, March 1. Deceased was a son of the late John G. and Maria C. Minnich, of Bedford, and was born at Shellsburg on July 23, 1849. He was married to Alice E. Shuck, daughter of the late George D Shuck, on September 23, 1873. Two children were born to them Edward, deceased, and Mary M.., of Philadelphia. At the time of his death, Mr. Minnich was employed by the G.S. Lovell Co., as manager of the Williams typewriter agency of Philadelphia, which position he filled with marked efficiency. For the past eighteen years Mr. Minnich resided in Philadelphia, prior to which time he was engaged in the drug business in Bedford under the old firm name of "L.W. Minnich & Co." A man of genial disposition, with strength of character, broad in his view of life and kindly in his dealings with his fellow men, true to his trust in obligations of citizenship and most tender in his devotion to home ties it can well be said of him, a good man has fallen. Mr. Minch is survived by his wife and daughter Mary, of Philadelphia. Funeral services will be held from the home of George R Shuck, West Pitt street, Bedford, today at 3 p.m., and will be conducted by Rev. M.L. Culler, of the Lutheran church, assisted by Rev. George Leidy, of the Methodist church. Interment will be made in the Bedford cemetery.
