Jack Longueville Dies Suddenly On Monday
The many friends of Jack Longueville were shocked at his sudden death caused by a heart attack Monday afternoon about 1:15. Mr. Longueville, who apparently was in his usual health had been assisting with the work at the Haines Meat company, while Mr. Bieber was confined to his home with flu. After dinner at the Beiber home Monday, Mr. Longueville and Sherman Olson started for the slaughterhouse in the meat company truck. On the way out Mr. Longueville became ill and although Sherman hurried him back to town as fast as possible, he had passed away before they arrived. Coroner A.L. Schroeder was called here from Baker and the body taken by West and Company pending funeral arrangements.
John Joseph Longueville was born April 18, 1887, in Paliseul, Belgium, and came to the United States when he was about four years old. He had lived in the Haines vicinity for over 30 years and was employed for many years as a meat cutter at the Haines Meat market.
The only surviving relatives in this county are a son Robert A. Longueville of Portland and a brother Louis of Richmond, Calif. The son arrived here Wednesday morning from Portland.
Funeral services will be held at the West Funeral parlors at 10 a.m. Friday, with Rev. J.T. Croot officiating. Interment will be in the Haines cemetery. Mr. Longueville leaves a host of friends to mourn his loss.
