Elmer Henry Shultz, 68, native of Woodford and long time resident of Bennington, died this morning at Putnam Memorial Hospital where he had been a patient for a little more than a week.  He was moved to the hospital after he had suffered a fall on Main street a week ago Sunday.

Mr. Shultz would have been 69 on Thursday, Oct. 8.  His parents were the late Albert and Bertha (Gleason) Shultz.  His schooling had been received in Woodford and Bennington.  He married the former Mildred R.

After being employed for a brief time with the H. E. Bradford plant, he became affiliated with the Bennington Hosiery Company and was a foreman there until the plant discontinued its operations in the 1930's.  His last employment had been with Ben Mont Papers, Inc. where he retired in 1954 due to frail health.

During the days when he was active, he was an ardent outdoorsman and fond of hunting, fishing and camping.  At one time he belonged to the Masonic Order, a member of Bennington Lodge.  He was a member of Loyal Order of Moose here.

Survivors are two sons, Elmer E. and Seymour G. Shultz, both of Bennington; one brother, Dexter of North Bennington; a sister, Mrs. George Bugbee of Woodford; five grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
