John Zimmer died at the Miami Valley hospital Friday after an illness of several days. Mr. Zimmer was well-known in the city. He resided at 58 Dover street.
The deceased was 46 years of age and leaves a widow and two children to survive.
The funeral will take place Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the residence and interment will be made at Woodland.
A particularly sad coincidence in connection with the death and funeral of Mr. Zimmer is the fact that the father will be buried just one year to the very day his youngest son was instantly killed by electric light wires while climbing to the top of an electric light pole because several of his companions dared him to do so.
