Meets Death In Pool While Bathing
Siro Martinelli, well known rancher and resident of Tocaloma, met death last Friday night while bathing in a pool near the Codoni ranch at Tocaloma.
Martinelli, brother of Supervisor Attilio Martinelli of Inverness, Pompeo Martinelli and Peter Martinelli, all of the Point Reyes district, left the ranch house after eating a hearty meal at night, with the expressed intention of bathing in a nearby pool. He wore a bathing suit. Some hours later, Martinelli not having returned to the ranch, one of the employees started a search for him. The body was found in the pool. It is believed that Martinelli was seized with cramps. He was a cousin of Attorney E. B. Martinelli of San Rafael.
He was 51 years of age and is survived by two children, Alice and Clarence, besides his brothers. His wife passed away a few years ago.
The funeral was held Monday under the direction of the F. E. Sawyer company.
