Funeral services for William J. Nutting, 74, were held at 2 p.m. last Wednesday at the Hartwig and Ruesch Funeral Home in Medford, with the Rev. Fred W. Kollath officiating.  Burial was in the Evergreen Cemetery.


Mr. Nutting died of a heart attack early Monday morning, Jan. 16, 1950, at the home of his son, Rudell, in Medford.  He was born in the town of Beaver (Clark Co., Wis.) on Dec. 15, 1875, and on June 20, 1900, he was married to the former Mary Smith in Neillsville.  She preceded him in death in 1943, when he moved to Medford.


He served as deputy sheriff of Clark County for two terms and, while a resident of the town of Goodrich in Taylor County, served as director of the Washington School Board.  He lived in North Dakota for nine years, four of which he served as postmaster at Makoti.  He returned to Wisconsin and lived in Loyal for 10 years, working as a carpenter, and then moved to Goodrich.


Surviving are his son, five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.  Two brothers, Clifford and Dumont Nutting, both of Butternut, also survive.  A daughter, Mrs. Forest (Naomi) Asleson, preceded him in death.
