Death in Nova Scotia of a Winter Resident
The Father of Mr. E. E. Jack of this County
Last Tuesday morning a telegram came to E. E. Jack, stating that his father, S. S. Jack, had died suddenly of heart failure in Halifax, Nova Scotia. About a month ago Mr. Jack left his home in Decatur, Illinois for a pleasure trip in northern Canada, visiting Niagara Falls, Toronto, Quebec, Montreal and several other cities en route, Halifax being the terminal point and he was just starting home when, without an hour's illness he was suddenly stricken.
While he counted himself a resident of Decatur, he has been a winter resident of the Salt River valley for the past ten years, and interested in Arizona for twice that number of years, making his first visit to Arizona and Salt river Valley when the first attempt was made to build the Wolfley dam at Gila Bend. He holds some property in the valley and has always been interested in its development.
He was a man of sterling worth and won the respect and admiration of all with whom he came in contact. Besides a host of friends he has two sons in Arizona, Edgar E., a well-known rancher of the valley and Francis J., at one time a resident of Flagstaff, but now in the employ of the A. & C. company at Bisbee. Both left immediately for Decatur upon receiving the sad news.
He also has two other sons in Decatur, T. B. Jack of the law firm of Jack & Deck, who was with his father at the time of his death and Dr. Cecil Jack, one of the leading physicians of that city.
