“Stricken while driving his automobile at the corner of High and Second streets, Charles A. Hirsch, 56, well known grange leader and manager of the Farm Bureau Cooperative of Ross county, died unexpectedly about 10:40 a.m. Monday. He had been driving west on Second street and apparently was stricken as he neared the corner, for he had jammed on the brakes of the car, thus stalling the engine, and the machine had stopped in the middle of High street, headed north at the corner. Found by Officer Sgt. Clark Graves, who was coming south on High street in a police cruiser, found him slumped over the wheel. There was no indication of life, but Dr. 0. L. Iden was summoned and pronounced him dead. At the Farm Bureau Cooperative, it was said that Mr. Hirsch, who had not been in good health for the past 10 days, had left there Monday morning to visit his physician. He has born in Huntington township on April 27, 1887, and would have reached the age of 57 on Thursday. In his early life, he taught school for three years and farmed for 12 before taking employment with Adam Hamm & Sons where he worked for four years. He then became an automobile salesman for the Lynch Motor Car company where he was employed for 14 years, leaving there in 1937 to become local representative for the New York Life Insurance Co. In November, 1941, he retired from the life insurance business to become manager of the cooperative. For a time, he was engaged with his son in the oil business, and developed the Zane addition on Route 23, just north of the city, where he also owned a farm. He was for 13 years deputy master of the state grange for Ross county, and was an active grange member for many years. He had served as master of the Chillicothe grange and was secretary of the Ross County Agricultural Council, representing the cooperative. Arrangements are being completed by the M. J. Grohe funeral home. “
