Dropped Dead in His Office.
While discussing the details of a foreign shipment with his daughter one day last week. Joseph J. Finnerty, sixty-two, a manufacturer of fire department and railroad supplies at 146 Reade street, was stricken with heart failure and died in his office chair. Mr. Finnerty was quite widely known as a skilled mechanic of the very highest class. Nozzles for fire hose made by him are in use in all parts of the country, and like all the product from his shops, bear the stamp of the very best type of workmanship.
