 E. Kendall writes:
My grandfather, Thaddeus Richmond (Rich) Kendall II, after a prolonged drinking bout and with a case of pneumonia, returned to be with his wife at her parents home on Front Street in Binghampton, NY. It was there that he fell down the stairs and died shortly afterwords. He had been a dashing young man of talent, a newspaper man with a drinking problem who wasted his life.
