This short obituary for my paternal grandfather provided little genealogical information, not even the name of his widow. But it did give the information that he was vice-president of the California Horological Association. I knew that he had been a member of the organization but didn't know that he had served in a leadership capacity. It also confirms his home address as listed on his death certificate.
