DILFER, John Walter, Jr.

A Cumberland serviceman who returned home last Monday after receiving his discharge from the Army Air Forces took his life yesterday morning at his home. He was John Walter Dilfer, Jr., 24, of 820 Piedmont avenue, who was found hanging from the head post of his bed between noon and 12:30 yesterday by his mother who went to his room to call him for lunch. The young man had attended a dance Friday night with his sister and they returned home about 2 a. m. Dilfer was heard humming a song in his room by the sister, according to friends of the family. It was also reported to police that he had not appeared despondent and he left no note giving a reason for taking his life. When the mother went to his room he was slumped in his bed with the cord from his bath robe knotted around his neck and tied to the bed post. Death was due to strangulation, and Dr. Linne H. Gorson, deputy county medical examiner, gave a verdict of suicide after viewing the body. Mrs. Dilfer was in a state of collapse when Sgt. Raymond Johnston, of the city police arrived at the home in answer to a call to headquarters. Later, County Investigator Terrence J. Boyle and Detective Lieut. B. Frank Gaffney went to the home. The dead man was a graduate of Allegany High School and served more than three years in the Army. Dr. Gorson placed the time of death at about 5 a. m. yesterday. Besides his parents he is survived by a sister, Miss Greta Dilfer, a registered nurse. Funeral services will be held Tuesday at 2 p. m. at Stein's chapel with the Rev. Dr. H. Hall Sharp, pastor of St. Luke's Lutheran church, officiating, interment will be in the church cemetery.
