Although it was not altogether unlooked for, the county was shocked when word came up from Moab that L.B. Redd, cashier of the State Bank of San Juan, had died in the hospital there this morning at 1 o'clock.
Mr. Redd was taken suddenly ill with a heart attack some two weeks ago, and was rushed to the hospital here he could receive the best of medical attention and expert care. he had always been in robust health prior to the attack, it coming with a shock not only to him but to all that knew him. Little hope was help out for his recovery from the start, but everyone hoped for the best until announcement was made that the fight for life had been a losing one.
The body will be embalmed and brought back to Blanding for interment, the funeral to take place as soon as relatives can be notified and heard from, it not being probable that it will take place until Sunday next.
This is the second death in the family within the past two years that first being that of Cashier of the San Juan State Bank L. Hardy Redd, whose place L.B. took on Hardy's death.
The loss will be heavily felt in financial circles of the county, he being identified with many other landed and livestock interests besides the bank.
