The news of the sudden death of Floyd A. Fingar
who passed away at the Hudson City Hospital Wednesday last was received in this place with great sadness as he was well-known here. Mr Fingar had been a resident of this village the past few years, where he had a large circle of friends who deeply feel the loss of a friend.
He was employed at the Livingston garage and was a first class workman, kind and generous hearted, and always found great pleasure in doing something to help one else when the opportunity was his to do so. He had been in poor health for some time and at last was advised to have an operation, which he did and had so far recovered as to be able to sit up in a chair and read the newspapers. He
was expected home the latter part of the week.
His funeral was held from the Manorton church Saturday afternoon and was largely attended by relatives and friends of the deceased.
He is survived by his father William Fingar
, one sister, Mrs Homer Knickerbocker
and three brothers, Harry, Percy
and Worthy Fingar
who have the sympathy of a host of Livingston friends in their sad bereavement. A great many beautiful floral pieces from relatives and friends adorned the casket which showed the high esteem in which he was held. - The Columbia Republican
