Well Known Man Passes Away
THOMAS O'ROURKE, a familiar figure about Fairfax, passed away very suddenly Friday afternoon at the Ross General Hospital. Although he has been ill for some time, his death was a great shock to his many Marin County friends.
Mr. O'ROURKE had lived in Fairfax for a number of years, and was operating a cigar store in town up to the time of his death.
Friends of the deceased were invited to attend the funeral Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. from the mortuary of Julius S. Godeau, Inc. on Van Ness Ave., San Francisco. A mass for the repose of his soul was held at St. Joseph's Church, and interment took place at Holy Cross Cemetery.
The deceased is survived by his wife, Lillian O'ROURKE, and 3 sisters; Mary O'CONNOR, Mrs. Nellie R. COLEMAN, and Katherine WATSON. He was a brother of the late Joseph O'ROURKE.
