Charles Suchy died suddenly at his home in this place Wednesday evening a few minutes before 5 o'clock. He had been out and around all day and had just carried an armful of wood into his house and was engaged in conversation with his wife when he dropped to the floor and, it is believed, died instantly. Mrs. Suchy immediately called the neighbors and Dr. Clarke was hastily summoned, but nothing could be done, the grim reaper having claimed his own.
Charles Suchy was born in Germany sixty-seven years ago. Coming to America while yet a young man, he served several years in the U. 5. navy. He lived for several years in Kansas City. He came to Whitehorse twelve years ago this month and has since made it his home, being joined here two years ago by his wife and little grand-daughter. During his residence here he was busy at odd jobs and made considerable money, leaving valuable property in Seattle, Victoria and farm land in Nebraska. He is survived by his wife and six children, four daughters and two sons. The daughters are all married, one residing in Michigan, one in Indiana, one in Nebraskaand the other, Mrs. Feddeson, mother of little Irma who has made her home here with her grandparents, residing at Ketchikan, Alaska. Of the two sons, one is in the United States navy. The children have all been notified of their fathers's death.
The funeral will be held at 2 this afternoon from the residence, Rev. W.
Father Rivet conducting the service. Interment will be, temporarily, in the local cemetery, but Mrs. Suchy says she wil take the body with her to the outside, Nebraska, later.
