|HE DROPPED DEAD WHILE DRESSING|
Sudden Call for David C. Miller at His Son's Home in Dale Borough
WAS BEDFORD COUNTY MAN
David C. Miller, aged seventy years, a respected citizen of HeIixville, Bedford County, dropped dead about 7:30 o'clock Monday morning at the home of his son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Miller, of Cliff street, Dale. The aged man was a sufferer from chronic heart trouble and was stricken while dressing for the day. His daughter-in-law, who heard him fall, was hastened to the room to find him expiring. She summoned Dr. I. E. Sloan, but death came before the physician arrived.
David C. Miller was at one time a prominent farmer of Bedford County, but for some years past ill health had compelled his retirement from active life. He came to Johnstown about three weeks ago, intending to spend the balance of his days with his son. On Saturday he had a serious attack of heart trouble, but seemed so much better Sunday that little anxiety was felt by relatives.
The wife of the deceased died some years ago. He is survived by the following children: Henry and Miss Tina Miller, of Helixville; Jacob, of Cliff street, mentioned above; John, of the Seventh Ward; Mrs. Herman Oyler, of Strayer street, Dale; Mrs. C. A. Shomo, of Bedford street, and Mrs. Jacob Hertz, of Benscreek.
The remains were taken to Helixville for interment.
