Death Claims Manuel Duarte
Manuel R. Duarte, one of Monterey‘s well known pioneers, died Tuesday afternoon in a local hospital after a long illness. Mr. Duarte was born in Monterey 84 years ago, and spent his entire life here. He has been identified with the waterfront development of the city and gave much of his time to civic affairs. For many years he operated a ship’s chandlery at the corner of Scott street and Calle Principal. This store served as an impromptu meeting place for fishermen as well as many city officials. Mr. Duarte also was a collector of waterfront memorabilia which he kept, and sometimes sold, at his store. Each item was identified by a fabulous yarn, the telling of which invariably accompanied each sale, to the delight of the purchaser. Mr. Duarte spent most of his time following his retirement in the garden, of his home at 238 Dorado street. He leaves two daughter : Mrs. Alta Crowe and Mrs. Hilda Brown, both of Monterey; one sister, Mrs. Ruffina Machado of Oakland, and one granddaughter, Helen Ann Crowe. Funeral services will be held in the T.A. Dorney funeral home at 11 a.m. Friday, and burial will be in the family vault in the Monterey City Cemetery.
