Mr and Mrs. Andrew Ott received a message last Thursday night that their son, Will, had died in Los Angeles, California. The news came as a great shock. Will had left here in September expecting to spend the winter south. He had not been in very good health when he left here, but thought the only trouble was hay fever. His brother, Carl, went down in November and wrote back that he thought Will was looking much better. At no time did the family think that there was anything seriously the matter with Will, so the word of his passing came as a heavy blow. Acute dilation of the heart was given as the cause of death. The body was shipped from Los Angeles Monday night and is expected to arrive tonight. Carl is accompanying the remains. The funeral will be held Saturday afternoon at the Zion Congregational church, conducted by Rev. R. Eggerland.

William H. Ott was born on the Ott farm near Ritzville August 11, 1897. He grew up here and attended the public school, graduating high school in 1916. In 1918 he joined the Merchant Marines and served seven months, making a trip across the Pacifice to Vladivostok. He engaged in farming around here until he went to California a few months ago. He was a fine type of your man with a great many friends.

He is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Ott, and by three brothers and four sisters. (Albert, Carl, Theodore, Barbara, Anna, Carrie & Louise)
