Birth: May 30, 1881
Death: Oct. 30, 1930

"Oneonta:---Sanford V. Fonda, a well known barber in Oneonta, who has lately been employed at the Apak shop, died Thursday at his home, 338 Main street, within a few minutes after he was stricken with angina pectoris. Mr. Fonda had been about as usual during the day, but awakened during the night and was stricken as he was walking toward the kitchen of his apartment. Funeral services were held Saturday morning at 10:30 o'clock from the family home, 338 Main street, by Stewart C. Millard, reader of the First Church of Christ, Scientist. The body was taken to Breakabeen for interment. Sanford V. Fonda was born May 30, 1881, at Sharon Springs, the son of David and Sarah (Hurst) Fonda and spent his young manhood there. He was about 25 years old when he went to Schenectady, where he worked at his trade for about seven years, later returning to Sharon Springs for about four years before coming to Oneonta in 1922. He was married in 1902 to Ida Bergh of Breakabeen, who survives him together with four children, Dr. Leland Fonda, of Titusville, Pa., Edwin Fonda, of New York city, and Miss Betty Fonda and Miss Gertrude Fonda, both of whom live at home; two sisters, Mrs. Edna Swift and Miss Florence Fonda of Jersey City, N. J.; three brothers, John Fonda of Syracuse, Andrew Fonda of Cherry Valley and Dr. Hurst Fonda of Braddock, Pa.; besides a number of nephews, nieces and cousins. Mr. Fonda was a capable workman and a man possessed of a pleasing personality which made him wide circles of friends, who will join in sympathy to the family."
