William Rochelle, Respected Citizen, Died on Tuesday Morning.

William Rochelle, one of Hamilton’s respected citizens and retired grocer, died at 5 o’clock Tuesday morning at his home, No. 946 Heaton street, of general debility, at the age of 76 years, 3 months and 17 days, after months of illness.

Mr. Rochelle is survived by the widow, one son, John Rochelle of Hamilton, and a daughter, Mrs. Flora Smith of Cincinnati, two brothers and three sisters, who have the sincere sympathy of the community in the loss of a devoted husband, a loving and indulgent father and a kind brother. The city loses a citizen, by Mr. Rochelle’s death, who was ever interested in the welfare and prosperity of the affairs of the city.
