H. Sims Answers Call of Death
Death came yesterday at noon to relieve the severe suffering of Harrison Sims at his Allman avenue home, and a life of patient labor in the face of handicap is ended.
Harrison Sims was known to most residents of San Rafael, his ice cream wagon being a familiar sight daily and every evening on Fourth street and in front of the theatres.
Although a sufferer from rheumatism for many years, he was severely attacked early last week with an acute ailment, and despite the care and constant attention of a physician, his daughter, Mrs. Amy Aylesworth, and his son, Norman Sims, grew steadily worse.
The deceased was 56 years of age and had lived in San Rafael for 17(?) years. He was a native of Vermont. The funeral will be held Friday morning at 11 o’clock from Sawyer’s Parlors and burial will be made in Mt. Tamalpais cemetery. Rev. Brown of the Methodist church will conduct the services.
