REV.JOHN NOLT PASSES SUDDENLY AFTER CAR CRASH
The Rev. John H. Nolt, 73, Clarkston, retired Nazarene church minister, died yesterday morning at 11:30 at Asotin County Memorial hospital of shock and heart disease.
The Rev. Nolt entered the hospital after his car struck the northeast corner of the 24th St. grocery on the south side of Main St. at 9:50. He apparently had suffered a heart attack and lost control of his vehicle, which was traveling west on Main St.
The Rev. Nolt was taken by ambulance to Clarkston hospital. A physician was preparing to make x-rays of his chest when he suffered a second and fatal heart attack.
He had arisen early at his home at 13th and Libby, and later drove to the Clearwater unit of Potlatch Forests, Inc. to obtain fuel.
VEERED ON STREET
Police investigated the auto crash and reported an eye witness to the mishap said the Rev. Nolt drove on the wrong side of the road for approximately one and one half blocks before smashing into the store. He was traveling between 15 and 25 miles an hour.
The Rev. Nolt was able to identify himself to police when they reached the scene of the accident. Only apparent injury resulting from the car crash was a minor cut on the bridge of his nose. However, the steering wheel of his sedan was broken and the left front section of the vehicle was damaged.
The Rev. Nolt had been in apparent good health. He preached a sermon at Culdesac Sunday. He had been active in church work for 28 years.
NATIVE OF WISCONSIN
He was born in Sauk County, Wis., Dec. 15, 1875. His parents moved to South Dakota when he was 5. He lived in that state until 1921. On May 28, 1902, he married Grace Mae Royer of Huron, S. D. He entered Dakota Wesleyan University at Mitchell, S.D. in 1910, and completed his theological studies three years later.
He accepted a pastorate at Mitchell, S.D. and remained there until 1921, when he moved to Buhl, Idaho. He remained there four years, then spent two years each at Weiser and Emmett and a year at Parma. He came to Lewiston in 1930 and was pastor of the Church of the Nazarene for five years.

The Rev. Nolt transferred to Dayton, Wash. in 1935 and was pastor there for the Nazarene church for four years. He went to Kennewick, Wash. in 1939 and two years later retired from active church work and moved to Clarkston. He continued his work as supply pastor for the Nazarene church and frequently had substituted for the Lewiston pastor.
Survivors include his wife; four daughters, Mrs. Phillip Reinmuth of Lewiston, Mrs. Gayle Hatfield and Mrs. Kenneth Meenach, Seattle, and Mrs. Everett Eggers, Spokane; a son, Paul of Lewiston; two sisters, Mrs. Lee Hamiel of Mt. Vernon, S.D., and Mrs. Rinnie Haskell , Fergus Falls, S.D., and Walter, Mitchell[S.D.]
Funeral services will be conducted Thursday afternoon at 3 from Brower-Wann chapel with the Rev. Paul Mangum of Lewiston officiating. Burial will be at Normal Hill Cemetery.
