Obituary

Muskegon Chronicle, Muskegon, MI Saturday, November 22, 1913, page 1:1

DISCOVER BODY OF AGED FATHER LYING IN DITCH   Members of Fruitport Family Find Farmer Died Late  Yesterday  WAS CLEANING OUT DRAIN  Believed That Well-Known Resident Was Victim of Heart Failure  While his  family was absent yesterday afternoon from the farm residence in Fruitport township, John Neis, well known  farmer of that part of the county, dropped dead in a ditch on his property which he went to clean out.  His body was  not found until 8 o’clock this morning although searchers were out until after midnight.  Heart trouble was the  cause of death.  For a number of years, Mr. Neis has been troubled with his hear but had not been complaining  lately of any illness.  None of the family was at home when Mr. Neis left the house and no one, on returning at  supper time had any idea where he was.  Drops Dead in Ditch  Leaving his house, Mr. Neis evidently took his hoe  and went to a ditch or drain on his property quite a little distance from the residence, and started cleaning it out.   Evidently, the exertion of the work was too much for him and he dropped over dead into the ditch.  His hoe fell in  along side of him and from any distance no one would realize that the drain contained the body of a man.  Members  of the family returned about 5:30 o’clock and searched frantically in the neighborhood for the aged farmer but could  find no trace of him.  Foul play was hinted at and all kind of suspicions and rumors were afloat concerning his  mysterious disappearance.  A searching party was quickly organized but it was then dark.  With lighted lanterns  the party looked through some adjacent woods searching until after midnight.  Is Found This Morning  Early this  morning the search was taken up and after futile efforts until 8 o’clock, the body was found in the ditch where it  had dropped the afternoon before.  Mr. Neis was born in Luxemburg, Germany 60 years ago and came to the United  States in 1883.  He was married to Miss Christine Weber in 1889.  He leaves one son, William and three  daughters, Elizabeth and Wilhemina Neis and Mrs. John DeBoor.  Mr. Neis was a member of the St. Joseph’s  German Catholic church.

NESBIT, WILLIAM H. MR.

Obituary

White Lake Beacon, Whitehall, Michigan, 13 February 2005, Page 7-B

Mr. William H. Nesbit, Kauai, HI, 1936-2005.  The adventurous life of Bill Nesbit (born June 21, 1936), came to a peaceful end surrounded by loving friends and family on January 31, 2005 on his beloved island of Kauai.  Bill, the son of Taft and Edith Nesbit, was born in Muskegon, Michigan and raised in Paradise Valley-Land of Milk and Honey in Montague, Michigan.  His business skills were learned early while working for his father at Nesbit's Supermarket in downtown Montague.  He attended Montague High School, Muskegon Community College and Michigan State University.  In 1959, he was drafted into the US Army, receiving an honorable discharge in July of 1961.  Soon after, the "call of the west" came and he moved to Los Angeles, spending seven years in the mortgage business, and then moving to San Jose and then to Diamond Heights in San Francisco.  He was then affiliated with a real estate firm, Taylor Properties, of which he later would become President and CEO.  After 20 years with Taylor Properties, he embarked on his next adventure, moving to London and then to Egypt ... the latter causing him to be affectionately known as "Cairo Bill" by close friends in the White Lake area.  In the early 90's he returned to the White Lake area, entering into the hotel business.  After the passing of his parents, Bill's thoughts began pulling him to the west again.  After realizing that many of his close friends from the California days had moved to Hawaii, he soon decided to retire on the island of Kauai, a place he had often vacationed in earlier years.  He was preceded in death by his parents (Taft 1996) and Edith (1977) and brother Edward (1989).  He is survived by brother David (Helena) of CT; nephews David (Amy, Nicole, Kayley & Ryan) of Whitehall, Scott (Bonnie, Danielle, Jared) of Muskegon and Steven (Toledo, Ohio); sisters-in-law, Norma Nielsen Nesbit of Whitehall and Cheryl Marks (Toledo, Ohio).  Bill also leaves behind many longtime friends from childhood and throughout his journeys who will always miss the legendary Bill from Paradise Valley in Montague, Michigan.  A celebration of Bill's life was held on the island of Kauai, Saturday afternoon, Feb. 12.  The services will be held on the beach of the Pacific Ocean he loved dearly.
