THE WESTERN STAR, 14 January 1916
Obituary of J. W. HOCH

J. W. Hoch, one Irwin-tp.'s well known and substantial citizens died at the home at 6 o'clock p.m. on Wednesday, January 5, 1916, after an 8 day illness, tuberculosis of the stomach and bowels being the immediate cause of his death. The body was taken on Friday to Arlington, Reno-co., for burial, that being the home of the family before they came to this county about eight years ago.

Mr. Hoch suffered a severe attack of typhoid fever about 15 years ago, and he never fully recovered from the effects of the attack. He was patient throughout all of his suffering, and evinced at all time the most hopeful and cheerful disposition. He was a good husband, neighbor and citizen. In his death, the entire community is made to grieve because of the loss of one who was a true friend to all.

The bereaved wife has the sincere sympathy of many friends. Brief funeral services were held at the residence on Thursday before starting with the body for Arlington. At the time of death, Mr. Hoch was about 46 years of age. he was a brother of Mrs. C. J. Simpkins and of Prof. J. F. Hoch of Protection.
