William Bellack Called By Death
Well Known Instructor of Music
Watertown Leader, 09 14 1906
At 6:06 o’clock Sunday evening occurred the death of William Bellack, a well known resident of this city and a son of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Bellack of 214 South Fourth Street, where the death occurred.
The deceased was forty-two years, seven months and four days old. For the past twelve years he had been a sufferer with heart trouble. He was a single man and musically inclined. In fact, for three years he studied music at Leipzig, Germany. After returning to this country he taught music in one of the conservatories at Chicago for several years. He then went to Nashville, Tenn., where he also taught for several years in a conservatory.
Unfortunately, ill health forced him to abandon his musical career to a great extent and he was obliged to give up his position with an extremely bright future in the musical world before him and return to this city, since which time he has made his home with his parents, keeping up his instructions in music as best he could, despite the fact that he was a great sufferer.
The deceased is survived by his parents and five brothers and three sisters . . .
