John Hassler Dead; Rites Held Tuesday

White Rock Canyon Rancher Was Horticultural Agent 13 Years

John E. Hassler, for fifty years a rancher and fruit-grower of the White Rock Canyon section, and the first horticultural commissioner for El Dorado County died Sunday evening at his home. Funeral services were held on Tuesday afternoon from the El Dorado County Federated church, the Rev. C.W. Null officiating. Burial was in Union cemetery. The services were attended by many from the large circle of friends in El Dorado County which Mr. Hassler had established during his sixty years of residence here, and the many beautiful floral pieces attested a measure of the esteem in which he was held by his neighbors and friends. Mr. Hassler, who was 76 years old, had been feeling pretty well until May 7, when he suffered a stroke of paralysis, following which his condition steadily became more serious until death came. A native of Baden, Germany, he came to America and to California when he was sixteen years of age, locating in El Dorado County. Ten years later, he became a fruit-grower and he followed that occupation during his entire life. In 1906 he was named horticultural commissioner for this county, and he held that office for thirteen years, the first horticultural commissioner for this county. He is survived by the widow, Mrs. Florence May Hassler, four daughters, Mrs. Howell B. Murphy, Mrs. Milo Carr, Mrs. John Crumley and Mrs. Gus Winkleman, all of this county; and four sons, Joseph and Bernard Hassler, of this county; Earl Hassler of Portland, Ore., and Millard Hassler of Chico. In addition, there are six grand-children, Mariam and Bernice Crumley, John Hassler, Jr; Bryce Carr, Richard Winkleman and Marilyn Murphy. A sister and a brother, Mrs. Mary Toombs AND JOSEPH HASSLER, BOTH of Alameda, also survive.
