DEATH OF ARTHUR EARL ALSOP
Bellingham Herald > June 22, 1922 > Arthur Earl Alsop, aged 19 years, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. A. Alsop, and grandson of Samuel Alsop, owner of the Exchange Block, died at the family residence, 1455 Franklin Street, last night at 10:30 o’clock, death being due to valvular for heart disease. The young man had been undergoing medical treatment for heart trouble for more than six years. He was a student of the Normal school until two years ago, when he was forced to give up his studies on account of poor health. He had recently taken a trip to Portland, Oregon on a vacation, having been employed as elevator boy in the Exchange block. While in Portland his heart trouble became aggravated, and it became necessary for his parents go to Portland after him, when he was brought home. His condition became rapidly worse, until death came suddenly last night to relieve his sufferings. Arthur is survived by his parents and three brothers, Fred E., Robert V., and Carleton W. Alsop, all residents of the city. Funeral services will be held from the resident Thursday afternoon at 2 o’clock, the Rev. Earl Naftzger, pastor of Trinity Methodist Episcopal Church officiating. The following companions of the young man will act as pallbearers: Vernal Bingham, Elston Jenkins, Howard Handbloom, Harry Hazelton, Jack Schubbe and Elmer Dodd. Interment will take place in Bay View Cemetery, under the direction of Mock and Hill, the Elk Street Funeral Directors.
