Fortier, F. A. – Obituary

Standard Oil Man Dies Unexpectedly
Death of Fortier Shock To Friends

The death of F.A. Fortier at the Hot Lake hospital at 2 p.m. Tuesday afternoon was a surprise and shock to his friends and acquaintances here, many of them not knowing that he had been compelled to return to a hospital.

While planning a Christmas visit at Boardman, where Mrs. Fortier’s parents reside, he was taken ill, and had to postpone the trip, about the first of the year, he had recovered sufficiently and they went to Boardman. While there he was taken acutely ill and confined for a time in a hospital at Hermiston. Upon returning, some weeks ago, he resumed his work at manager of the Standard Oil company’s wholesale distributing plant at North Powder. He had a relapse and was taken to Hot Lake last Friday.

Mr. Fortier had resided here for several months last year, coming here from Union where he had charge of the oil station there for the same company.

The funeral took place at La Grande yesterday at 10 a.m.

Tommy Shaw, who substituted as manager here previously, is now in charge of the local plant.
