Isaac Gotchy Passes On

Soldiers Home, May 21; 1911

Ed. "Sentinel"- On May 3, 1911, Isaac Gotchy of No. 458 Ocean St. Santa Cruz, was received at the Home Hospital and placed in Ward 1 under the charge of Dr. E.C. Day. Comrade Gotchy belonged to Co. K, the First Wisconsin Infantry. He was a very sick man when he arrived here. For a day or two he seemed to rally under the treatment of doctor and nurses. On the morning of the 11th of May at the breakfast hour he stopped in the midst of his meal, and in a few moments he breathed his last, silently, bravely, like the soldier that he was. He was buried in the Home Cemetery at 2 o'clock, May 13th, with full military honors. Some members of his old regiment were present at the funeral ceremonies.
