Rail Clerk Dies Of Heart Seizure
Arthur B. Sexton of Mill Valley, a clerk of the Northwestern Pacific Railroad Co. in Tiburon, died last night of a heart attack while trying to start a friend’s car in Mill Valley.
Sexton, his wife, Mary, and a friend, Mrs. Christine Hoshaw of 553 Woodbine Lane, San Rafael, had been to dinner in San Francisco, having left Mrs. Hoshaw’s car in the Purity Store parking lot.
Returning to the lot at 11:23 p.m., Mrs. Hoshaw had trouble starting her car and Sexton tried to start it for her. He suffered the attack while in the car.
Mill Valley firemen used a resuscitator in an effort to revive Sexton, but without success.
Sexton, 47, resided at 940 Vernal Avenue. He had been with the railroad for eight years and lived in Mill Valley for the same time. He was a native of Sebastopol.
He is survived by his wife; two sons, Kenneth and Howard, and two daughters, Marilyn and Bonnie Lee of Mill Valley; his mother, Mrs. Lula Lee Sexton of Sebastopol, and a sister, Mrs. Jack Mackie, formerly of Mill Valley but now of Martinez.
Funeral arrangements are pending at Russell and Gooch Mortuary in Mill Valley.
