Death, riding on the wings of pneumonia, came this morning (Friday) to J. E. Hunter of Espanola who had been lingering between life and death for nearly two weeks. Hunter died at 10:30 after a valiant tight for life.

The same disease brought death to Hunter's wife on Wednesday two weeks ago. Jean was ill when his wife died but got up and attended the funeral. Being forced to his sick bed again, he fought a losing tight against the grim reaper.

Funeral arrangements have not been completed, but probably will be held Sunday afternoon. Burial will be made in Espanola Cemetery beside his wife.

Hunter was well known to nearly everyone in this county, having attended school here and engaged in business and farming. He was a member of the County Democratic Executive Committee up to two years ago when he was succeeded by his brother E. A. Hunter, who is county commissioner in that district.

His death is a distinct shock to residents here and will be mourned by a host of friends here.

Surviving are his mother, Mrs. Ruth Hunter, one brother, E. A., all of Espanola. Also four sisters, Mrs. Harry Conley of Espanola; Mrs. Kenneth Biddle of Gainesville; Mrs. W. E. Kudrna of Bunnell; and Mrs. George Lloyd of LaBelle, Florida.
