C.W. Fallass Dies Thurs.

Charles W. Fallass, a resident of Petoskey for nearly 50 years, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Margaruite[sic]Barber at Dowagiac, Thursday afternoon, after an illness of several weeks. He was 88 years of age.

Mr. Fallass established a drug store here in 1900 and was active in business circles of this community until a few years ago. He was a member of the First Methodist church of this city and served on its several committees and boards for many years. He was at one time a member of the Board of Trustees of the Bay View Association in which community he has maintained a summer home. Upon his retirement he was made a trustee emeritus. Mr. Fallass devoted much of his time to church work and the activities associated with Bay View.

He was the oldest alumnus of Albion College, having graduated from that school in 1873. Later he practised law in Grand Rapids and then became a professor at Ferris Institute. He entered business for a short time in Cedar Springs before coming to Petoskey.

As a hobby, Mr. Fallass was a botanist, and in the course of his life he had collected one of the largest displays assembled outside of professional circles. People from all walks of life interested in botany frequently visited Mr. Fallass to see his collection and to get advise and suggestions from him.

Mr. Fallass is survived by his wife; one son, Henry Fallass, of New York City; three daughters, Mrs. Barber; Mrs. Carl Bergen, Long Beach, Calif.; and Mrs. Carol Risor, Salt Lake City, Utah.

Funeral services will be held Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock from the Stone Funeral Home with Rev. L.J. Nevins in charge of the services. The burial will be in Greenwood cemetery.
