John Molback Dead.
Passed Away Sunday Night While Asleep - Ill Only a Few Days.
John Molback, a resident of Lewiston for the past 18 years and well known in labor circles, died Sunday night from natural causes while asleep. Mr. Molback had not been feeling well for several days but was up and about until Sunday, when he stayed in his room all day. The lady with home he roomed called upon him Sunday evening to inquire about his condition and he states he was feeling better. His body was found yesterday morning, death evidently having taken place early Sunday evening.
Mr. Molback was about 56 years of age and is survived by a daughter who resides in Los Angeles. He was a bricklayer by trade and was well known to the union laborers of this section. He was a member of the bricklayers' union and the local labor council. Mr. Molback was a great lover of horses and when not employed at his trade, frequently devoted his time to horse training. He enjoyed the very high regard of a wide circle of friends.
The funeral will be conducted at 3 o'clock this afternoon from the Vassar chapel.
