William Henry Oilar, age 88, drowned in Lake Shafer near Lake View Home early Saturday morning. His body was later recovered by searchers who were called to the scene. The deceased had been a patient at the Home for about 3 years and had been in ill health recently.
Searchers found the victim's coat, hat and vest laying on the shore, where he apparently left them when he either jumped or fell into the water.
Surviving is a son Farris Oilar of East Chicago; and 2 brothers, Ben of Camby, Oregon and Asa of Battle Ground; also several grandchildren.
Funeral services will be held Monday afternoon at 4 p.m. at the Thompson funeral home at Brookston, with the Rev. C. A. Mitchell officiating. Burial will be in the I.O.O.F. cemetery at Brookston.
