Charles McCloskey

Charles McCloskey is dead. His face, which was so familiar to all our citizens, will be seen in our midst no more. Last Sunday morning at 3 o'clock he ceased to exhibit signs of life, and his exit from this world was so peaceful and so easy that the exact moment of his demise was not discernible. He had lived in Valparaiso 22 years, and during that time had made hosts of friends, but, so far as we know, no enemies. His death was caused by acute bronchitis, from which he had suffered for six weeks. His age was 45 years. The Knights Templars took special care of him during his illness and watched over the remains until they were taken away. Short religious services, led by Rev. R. Beer, took place at the Gould House, where Mr. McCloskey died, at 6:30 Monday, after which the corpse was taken to the depot and sent to the deceased's father's, at Meadville, Pa., to be buried.
