Monterey Peninsula Herald, CA Sept 12, 1966 p2
J. Russell Sprague, 65, a native and lifelong resident of Pacific Grove, died unexpectedly last night at his home, 133 18th St. Mr. Sprague was stricken shortly after his return from a trip. His wife, Margareth E. Sprague, called the telephone operator, who relayed the emergency summons to the Pacific Grove fire and police departments at 9:37 p.m. Firemen administered inhalation until a physician arrived and pronounced him dead. An autopsy will determine the exact cause of death. Mr. Sprague was born April 14, 1902, a member of a pioneer Pacific Grove family. His father, Nathaniel Roscoe Sprague, owned the beach concession at Lovers Point and operated the glass-bottom boat until his death Dec. 24, 1948. His son then took over the concession, which he operated until he sold it about a year ago. In addition to his wife, survivors include two sisters, Dr. Elfiera Sprague of Carmel and Mrs. Gilbert Rhodes of Pacific Grove; a brother, Forest Sprague of San Francisco; and two nephews, William R. Pugh of Seaside and Russell Fairbanks of Concord. Services will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday in the Paul Funeral Chapel. Private inurnment will take place in the Little Chapel by-the-Sea. The Paul Mortuary is in charge of arrangements.
