Prominent Citizen of Westfield
Passed Away Last Week

Westfield, May 1 - E. M. Tucker, founder and president of the Farmers' & Traders' Bank of Westfield, and one of the most prominent men in this community, died at his home here at 9:45 Monday morning, following an illness of only a few hours of acute indigestion. He was 74 years old.

Edward M. Tucker was born in Troupsburg, Steuben county, N.Y., February 21, 1839, the son of John and Lida Farwell Tucker. His father's parents were Daniel and Sallie Mackenzie Tucker, who had Scotch ancestry and were among the pioneers of Chenango county, N.Y. He was reared on the homestead at Troupsburg and later attended school at the Oxford Academy. He started in as a farmer on his parents' farm, where he remained until 1871, when he came to Tioga county and embarked in the marcantile business at Little Marsh, where he remained until 1877, when he moved to Westfield.

In Westfield Mr. Tucker engaged in the mercantile business and purchased tan bark for the Osceola tannery until 1885, when he was the foremost man in establishing the Farmers' and Traders' Bank in Westfield. It was a successful business venture and has become a solid financial institution. Mr. Tucker, besides being the directing genius of the local bank was a stock holder in the Cowanesque Valley Bank at Osceola and the Knoxville Banking Co. at Knoxville. A few years ago he relinquished his share in the Osceola Bank, but at the time of his death was a stockholder in the Knoxville institution, of which he was President.

In March, 1862, Mr. Tucker married Esther M. Perry, a daughter of Worcester and Marie Perry, of Woodhull, Steuben county, N.Y., and to them were born two children, Erna L. Westbrook, of Knoxville, and Perry H. Tucker, a Knoxville banker. Mrs. Tucker died March 11, 1898, after a long illness. On September 30, 1905, Mr. Tucker married Mrs. Mary Emmons, who survives her husband's death.

Mr. Tucker was a member of Ossea Lodge, No. 317, F. & A.M., of Wellsboro. He was long a member of the Westfield Council, the school board and borough treasurer.

The funeral, which was private, was held Friday.

Mrs. Mary E. Tucker died at her apartments in the Tucker block Monday afternoon at about six o'clock from an illness of three years' duration from heart disease and complications. She has been confined to her rooms for nearly all of that time and has been a constant sufferer, but brave and uncomplaining.

She was united in marriage to George Emmons and to them were born two sons, Craig and Gaylord, the latter having died when ten years of age. Mrs. Emmons' second marriage was to Mr. Ed M. Tucker in 1905 which happy union was terminated by Mr. Tucker's death in 1913. Mrs. Tucker had a pleasing personality that won her a host of friends in Westfield and vicinity who have been grieved to hear of her long illness. She was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church of Westfield and maintained a trustful faith to the end. She is survived by her son, Craig, of Elmira, N.Y., a granddaughter and a grandson, also two brothers, Ralph and William and a sister, Delphia Outman.

Former Giants Linebacker Brad Van Pelt Dies at 57

Brad Van Pelt, a stalwart linebacker for the Giants who was perhaps the best player on their woeful teams in the 1970s, died Tuesday in Harrison, Mich. He was 57 and lived in Harrison.

The cause has not been confirmed, his brother Kim said, but the suspected cause is a heart attack.

A fleet, athletically gifted player who was a safety in college and was converted to linebacker as a pro, Van Pelt excelled in pass coverage, intercepting 20 passes in his career. He was especially recognizable on the field for two reasons: his rangy physique, unusual for a linebacker, and his uniform number, 10.

League rules usually reserved such low numbers for kickers and members of the backfield, but because Van Pelt was listed as the Giants’ backup kicker when he was a rookie, the league allowed him to wear it for his entire tenure with the team.

He played 11 seasons with the Giants, from 1973 to 1983, and for five consecutive seasons, from 1976 through 1980, he was named to the Pro Bowl. The Giants named him their player of the decade for the 1970s.

Only once in Van Pelt’s career, however, did the team have a winning record, in 1981. By then he and another hard-working but little-rewarded player, Brian Kelley, had been joined in the linebacking corps by Harry Carson and Lawrence Taylor, and together they were the strength of the team. In a sense, Van Pelt was born just a few years too soon; as his career waned, Carson and Taylor became stars, and they, along with Carl Banks, who was drafted as Van Pelt’s replacement, provided the backbone of the defense that helped the Giants win their first Super Bowl after the 1986 season.

Van Pelt finished his career playing two seasons with the Los Angeles Raiders and one with the Cleveland Browns, retiring just as the Giants were becoming champions.

Brad Alan Van Pelt was born in Owosso, Mich., near Flint, in the central part of the state. He was a high school hero, making the all-league team in basketball, baseball and in football on both defense and offense; he was an all-state quarterback for Owosso High School. At Michigan State University, where he was twice an all-American safety, he played basketball and baseball as well. The Giants made him their second-round choice in the 1973 draft. He was not chosen in the first round because he was also considering a career in baseball; the St. Louis Cardinals had drafted him as a pitcher.

Van Pelt always felt the tug of home, even as a Giant. After a few years on the miserable Giant teams of the 1970s, he asked the team several times to trade him to the Detroit Lions. He went back to Michigan State in the 1990s and earned a degree in kinesiology, the branch of physiology that deals with human movement.

His two marriages ended in divorce. In addition to Kim Van Pelt, who lives in Owosso, he is survived by his fiancée, Deanna Ireland of Harrison; his mother, Bette Van Pelt of Harrison; a brother, Robin, of Owosso; and three sons: Brian, of Boulder, Colo., Bret, of Santa Barbara, Calif., and Bradlee, also of Santa Barbara, who has played quarterback for the Denver Broncos and the Houston Texans.
