Dr. D. F. Royer, Pioneer Physician in County Dies In Long Beach

One of Orage county's pioneer physicians and public spirited citizens had passed away today with the death of Dr. D. F. Royer, of Orange, who died unexpectedly yesterday in Long Beach, where he was visiting in the home of his daughter, Mrs. Mark Kohler. Death came as a result of heart trouble. He was 79 years old.

Dr. Royer came to Orange in 1896 and had practiced medicine in that city since that time, but he was known to residents there also as an able and tireless civic worker, having been mayor of the city for one term and a member of the city council for six years.

Funeral services will be held in the First Christian church in Orange at 2:30 p. m., Thursday. Interment will be in Fairhaven cemetery, where the Orange Masonic order, of which he was a member, will be in charge. The body is in the J. E. Scale Funeral parlors, in Fullerton.

Dr. Royer came to California from Alpena, S. D., where he had been city treasurer and a member of the school board. For two terms he was a member of the Dakota legislature before the state was divided, and was recognized as a leader on the floor. He was born in Waynesboro, Pa. His medical education was received in the Jefferson Medical school, in Philadelphia.

The pioneer physician is survived by three daughters, four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. The daughters, all of whom are well known in Orange, are Mrs. Warren Meats, of Lynwood; Mrs. Mark Kohler, of Long Beach, and Mrs. C. L. Wilson jr., of Orange.

Dr. Royer was a Knights Templar Mason and a Shriner, a member of the Odd Fellows and an Elk. He was a member of the Orange County Medical society, the American Medical association and the Pacific Coast Railway Surgeons' association. He served as surgeon for the Southern Pacific, Santa Fe and Pacific Electric railways. During the World war he was a member of the exemption board in Orange, which examined over 6000 men.
