SHERIFF HULL PASSES AWAY SUDDENLY OF HEART ATTACK
Due to a sudden attack of heart trouble brought on as a result of a stomach ailment from which he had been a sufferer for many years, Sheriff Marion Floyd Hull, 52, passed away late last night at the family home, 356 Main street.
He was able to be about yesterday morning and had submitted to a thorough examination by his physician in anticipation of an operation for the stomach ailment, but late in the day he developed an exceptionally high blood pressure, and last night during an attack from the stomach trouble his heart failed and he passed away quickly.
Born at Newville
Hull was a native of Tehama county, having been born in the Newville district, November 4, 1880, the son of Daniel M. and Eunice Hill, who were among the earliest settlers in the Newville district. His father died several years ago.
Prior to his election as sheriff seven years ago, Hull was engaged in the transfer business here. He had received his education in the Tehama county schools and spent his entire life in the county.
He survived by his widow, Mrs. Bertha Hull, the former Bertha Westfall, to whom he was married December 5, 1905, and one son, Milton Hull. He also leaves his mother.
Sheriff Hull was connected with many of the most widely known families in the county, including the Wolcotts, Westfalls, Dollings, Oakes, Wheelers and Osborns. While the office of sheriff gave him a wide acquaintance throughout the county, he was also one of the most popular men in the community because of his interest in all forms of outdoor sport, including hunting, fishing, baseball, football and boxing.
Milton Hull did not learn of his father's death until 9 o'clock this morning, having left here yesterday for Reno, Nevada. He was notified of his father's death there and started for home immediately.
The funeral services will be held Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Christian church under the auspices of the Red Bluff lodge of Elks of which Hull was an active member. Officers of the organization will conduct the lodge rites. Members of the lodge will attend the services in a body. Burial will be in Oak Hill Cemetery. The Rev. Mark Pike, pastor of the Methodist church will assist at the services.
Until Hull's successor is appointed, Coroner A. H. Fickert will be acting sheriff. - Transcribed by E.
