Employee of the Northwestern Pacific Railroad for many years until his retirement, Charles William Kepple, a long time resident of Corte Madera, died this morning in the Southern Pacific Hospital in San Francisco. He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Grace Agnes Kepple, two sons, Charles William and Corp. Irwin Edward Kepple and one daughter, Mrs. Bertha Hall.
Funeral will be held from Keaton's in San Rafael tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock, mass being celebrated in St. Patrick's Church, Larkspur, commencing at 8:30 a.m. The rosary will be recited at 8 o'clock this evening at the mortuary.
A Death Notice in the same paper mentions that he was also known as William Carl Kepple.
Another Death Notice appeared in the November 11, 1942 issue of the paper. In this one the name is spelled Keppel.
The CA Death Index has the name spelled as Keppel and says he was born Jan. 16, 1884. Mother's maiden name was Reiners.
