    • PROMINENT BARRISTER PASSES AWAY

      A. L. Bitzer Died Suddenly at His Home in Kitchener.
      Funeral Largely Attended.

      Twin-City friends learned with sincere regret of the passing of a prominent Kitchener barrister, Mr. Arno L. Bitzer, who died suddenly at his home early Sunday morning five hours after retiring. Death was due to heart trouble. He was in his 51st year. He enjoyed usual health and the day before his death mowed the lawn and in the evening enjoyed a social evening with friends at his home. At two o'clock in the morning he became ill and two hours later was dead. The doctor who was at Mr. Bitzer's bedside before he passed away attributed death to a blood clot. The late Mr. Bitzer for many years took an active interest in civic affairs, church and politics. He was the efficient treasurer for twenty-three years for both the St. Matthew's Lutheran Church and the Lutheran Seminary and Waterloo College, and was secretary of the North Waterloo Liberal Association for a long term of years. He was particularly interested in New Canadians and helped scores of German immigrants. He was largely instrumental in the reorganization of the Old German Club. Born in Kitchener, April 6th, 1883, a son of the late Conrad Bitzer, he attended the public and collegiate schools and entered the School of Law, Toronto University, graduating in 1906, following which he took over the law practice of his father. He was married to Miss Huehnergard, who survives along with his mother, three brothers, A. M, Bitzer of Toronto, M. A. Bitzer, Johnson City, Tenn., and W. L. Bitzer of Kitchener, and one sister, Miss Irmgard Bitzer, of Kitchener. Hundreds of relatives and friends and business associates attended the funeral held on Wednesday afternoon. A private service was held at the residence at 2.30 o'clock, followed by a public service at St. Matthew s Lutheran Church at 3 o'clock. An impressive sermon was preached by the pastor, Rev. J. Schmieder. Interment was made in Mount Hope cemetery.
