Roseville Boy Meets Death Tuesday Near Richardson Springs Joseph Catalano Falls 75 Feet to Bottom of Canyon Funeral Held Here Yesterday

Joseph Catalano, 15-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Catalano of 628 Alola Street, Roseville, met instant death soon after 9 o'clock Tuesday morning when he fell 75 feet to the bottom of a canyon near Richardson Springs. Joseph had just crossed the swinging bridge, which is ninety feet above the bottom of the canyon, and climbed down to a ledge a short distance down the wall of the gorge when he lost his balance and plunged head foremost to the bottom, death resulting instantly. The parents of the boy were eye witnesses to the tragedy. The family had gone to Richardson Springs for a two weeks' vacation, which was to have terminated on Tuesday. Besides the parents, Joseph's untimely death is mourned by two sisters, Mrs. Rosie Bertogani of Oakland and Grace Catalano of Roseville, and a younger brother, Frank, at home. The body of the unfortunate lad was brought to Roseville Wednesday, and funeral services were held on Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock from St. Rose's Catholic Church, Rev. F. Connors celebrating Mass. Interment was in the Roseville IOOF Cemetery.
