THOMAS R. HALEY
        Services in memory of Thomas R. Haley, former Warren resident, who died suddenly at Salamanca City Hospital Friday night from a heart attack, were held this morning at St. Patrick's Church in that city. Burial followed in the Calvary .
        Apparently in his usual good health, Mr. Haley was taken suddenly ill while listening to the radio.
        For the past thirteen years he had conducted the Haley Restaurant in Salamanca. He was shipping foreman for the former McCabe Industries of Rochester street for many years.
        Born in Highmarket he had been a resident of Salamanca forty-two years.
        Mr. Haley was a member of Salamanca Lodge 1025, BPOE (Elks), the Holy Name Society of St. Patrick's Church, and the Cattaraugus County Hotel Restaurant association.
        Surviving are a daughter, Mrs. Frederick C. Campbell, Salamanca; three sons, Richard J. Haley, Arthur E. Haley of Salamanca and Charles S. Haley of Little Valley; a sister, Miss Elizabeth Haley, Warren; and two brothers, Patrick Haley of Irwin and Lewis Haley of Anchorage, Alaska.
