Well Known Nicasio Man Passes Away
Camillo A. Cotta, one of the best known young men of the Nicasio district and member of a pioneer family, died at his home yesterday from an attack of pneumonia. His death was a shock to his many acquaintances, for but a few days ago he was in perfect health and with no thought of illness.
Cotta of late had been conducting a truck and hauling business but for a number of years he was the proprietor of the Nicasio Hotel. His widow was Miss Mae Farley, a member of a well known pioneer family of the Nicasio district.
He is survived by his mother, Mrs. Modesta Cotta, Celia, Amelia, Arnold, Joseph, and James Cotta, Mrs. B. Getnetti and Mrs. F. Righetti, brothers and sisters, in addition to his sorrowing widow. He was 42 years of age and a member of Pt. Reyes Court, No. 219, Foresters of America.
The funeral will be held tomorrow at 10:30, with services at Our Lady of Lourdes church, in Olema, with burial under the direction of J. R. Keaton. The remains are at the F. E. Sawyer Company’s parlors in San Rafael.
