Bernard Druck Passed Away
Prominent Local Merchant Dies This Morning in Pacific Grove
Bernard E. Druck, Monterey merchant and one of the best liked men of the Peninsula passed away this morning at Pacific Grove at two thirty five a.m. Death came as a relief after several months of suffering and hopeless resistance against an acute attack of Brights disease. For some time past, Mr. Druck had been in San Francisco, a large portion of the time in the care of Doctor Moffit, who is nationally known. Two weeks ago, however, he expressed a wish to return to the Peninsula, and with Mrs. Druck he returned to Pacific Grove. Only a few days ago word was received of the death of Samuel R. Druck, his father, a resident of San Jose. “Bernie” Druck was born in Iowa, 36 years ago. He came to California 15 years ago residing in San Jose until coming to Monterey in 1909, where he entered the establishment of George Bertold, as clerk. Bertold passed away a few months ago and left the Bertold Shoe Company to his two clerks, Otto Ternes and Bernard Druck, in whom he reposed much faith and confidence. The business was well handled and grew rapidly until no shoe store this side of San Francisco carried a finer stock. With Eddie Burnes, Druck formed the firm of Druck and Burns and it was his ambition to take all three stores in the Underwood building, join them and conduct a department store. A year ago last memorial day, Ternes was killed in an auto accident in the Carmel valley and since that time Mr. Druck has conducted the Shoe store alone. Firmly established as a leading merchant he married some eleven years ago taking for his wife Miss Leo Hendricks of Pacific Grove, the daughter of A.S. Hendricks of that city. The deceased is survived by a wife, Mrs. Leona Duck of Monterey, a mother, the widow of the late Samual Druck of San Jose and a sister, Mrs. Bert Graves, of San Jose. To the bereaved relatives goes the heartfelt sympathy of the community. Funeral services will be held at the Monterey First Presbyterian church, Tuesday morning at ten thirty a.m. under the auspices of the Monterey Order of Elks. Interment in the Pacific Grove cemetery. The remains may be viewed previous to the funeral at the funeral parlor of J.E. Freeman.
