He was also interested in insurance, being State agent for several of the largest companies. Mr. Fonda was a prominent Free Mason, and served for several years as Master of Joppa Lodge. The funeral, on Thursday, will be attended by the city officers, the Board of Fire Underwriters, and the members of the different Masonite lodges of Paterson. He leaves a wife and several children.
