Funeral services for John C. Struble were held in his home at 1108 Garfield Ave. last night. Rev. Albert K. Stanton, pastor of the Bergen Baptist Church, preached the sermon. A delegation from West Side Council No. 142, J.O.U.A.M., attended the services in a body to pay the last tribute of respect.
Mr. Struble had been foreman of the Baldwin Lumber Company for thirty-seven years and was one of the heads of the Monticello Building and Loan Association. A long and active business career made him one of the best known men in the Bergen and Lafayette sections. He enjoyed the friendship of hundreds of people. Mr. Struble died Sunday at the age of 70 years.
He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Laura Struble; one son, John Struble, and three daughters—the Misses Minnie and Edna Struble and Mrs. Irma Barto. Interment will take place in Frankfort Plains in the spring. Meanwhile the body will rest in a receiving vault in New York Bay Cemetery.
