     Obituary: Sudden Call of Death Came to William Hamill Sunday. Found Dead at His Home - Funeral Services to be Held on Tuesday - Elks' Services Tonight. Life's end came very suddenly Sunday morning for William Hamill, former superintendent of the municipal gas plant, at his home at North Tenth Street and Campbell Avenue. Mr. Hamill had been in failing health for some time due to cirhosis of the liver and complications, and for the past two weeks had been confined to his home. His condition, however, on Sunday morning seemed no more serious than it had been for several days and about 9 o'clock he went to the bath room. When Mrs. Hamill after a reasonable time failed to hear anything of her husband she called to him and got no response. She then called Charles Martin, a neighbour who went into the bath room where he found Mr. Hamill dead. Mr. Hamill was 60 years of age and had spent practically all of his life in Hamilton. For a number of years he was connected with the plant of the old Hamilton Gas Company, but later left the employ of this company and became superintendent of the municipal gas plant. He held this position for several years and was still connected with the plant at the time of his death although the condition of his health had compelled his relinquishment of the management of the plant. Mr. Hamill is survived by the widow, his second wife, and six children, Mrs. Herbert C. Root, Mrs. Charles Hopps and Morey Hamill of Hamilton; Miss Opal Hamill, a student nurse at Christ Hospital, Cincinnati; Mrs. George Runnels, of Richmond, Ind; and Mrs. William Witham, of Suffield, Canada. Mr. Hamill was a man of sterling character and was held in high esteem by a large circle of friends. His death will come as a severe shock to the many who knew him and especially to those with whom he was associated in business and social way. Mr. Hamill was a member of Hamilton Lodge, No. 93, B.P.O. Elks, the members of which will hold their services for him tonight at 8 o'clock at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Herbert C. Root, 664 Heaton Street, with Allen Andrews as the eulogist. The Elks will meet at their home promptly at 7:30 to proceed to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Root. The funeral services will be held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Root tomorrow afternoon at 2:30, the Rev. A. J. Arrick of the Presbyterian Church officiating, with interment in Greenwood. The bearers of the pall will be: Charles Z. Mikesell, John W. Faucett, Louis Long, Dr. C. G. Lockwood, Judge John B. Connaughton and S. S. Wintersteen.10,13
