Ritzville paid its final respects Wednesday to another longtime business leader, Victor A. Chargois, who died Monday at the age of 74. Archdeacon Roland Hills of the Episcopal church conducted funeral services Wednesday afternoon in the Danekas and Duncan funeral home chapel. Burial was in the Ritzville Memorial cemetery.

Born in England in 1878, Chargois came to the United States 62 years ago and to the Ritzville area in 1904. He was one of the group of local men and women who in 1921 organized the Ritville State Bank.
During his years as vice president and cashier, Chargois became intimately familiar with land values in Adams county, conducting appraisls and issuing loans on hundreds of tracts.

He served as mayor of Ritzville in 1928. He was a member of the school board and World War II selective service board, and was active in many bond drives. He belonged to the local Lions club and Masons, and was a member of the Episcopal church.

Chargois retired from the Ritzville State Bank as cashier on Jan 1. 1951 and as a direcotr at the end of 1951. Since then he had spent much of his time with a daughter, Mrs. William Hahn of Ellensburg and with a son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. William Tanner, who operated Chargois ranch on the Marcellus road 11 miles from Ritzville.

Other survivors include two sisters, Mrs. Ward Rasmus of Walla Walla and Mrs. Alfred Davis of Yakima; two brothers, Bert Hall of Oakesdale and James Hall of Cloverdale, Oregon and five grandchildren.
