OBIT:

J. A. "Gus" Hollett, age 68, Klickitat Valley, died at his home at Crofton Prairie at 10:15 a.m., Monday, February 27. From all indications, he took his own life.

According to Deputy Sheriff Jiggs Murphy and Prosecuting Attorney Thurman Ward, who made the investigation. Hollett shot himself with a 30-30 carbine. He had left the house and gone into a wash room nearby. Lloyd Davis, a neighbor, heard the shot at approximately 10:15 a.m., but members of the family did not hear it because the radio was playing loudly. Discovery of the body was made at 10:30.

It was said that Hollett had been ill recently and it is reported had become despondent. Hollett had been living with his brother, Earl, and two sisters, Mrs. Grant Clarence and Mrs. Angie Berrion. He had been married but his wife passed away approximately seven years ago.

Funeral services will be held at the Phillips Funeral Home on Thursday, March 2, at 2:00 p.m. with Rev. Preston Worrell officiating. Centervile Grange is in charge of the graveside service.
