Isador Buyvid, 78, of 128 Arthur street, collapsed and died while working about the yard of his home Friday afternoon. Members of his family found his lifeless form and notified Patrolman Stanley Milutis, a next door neighbor, who was home for lunch. He called police and Patrolmen Lonergan and Cody responded but found that man had been dead for some time. Medical Examiner Peirce H. Leavitt ruled death due to a heart attach. Last rites were given by a priest from St. Casimir's church.
Mr. Buyvid came to America and settled in Brockton over 50 years ago. He was a native of Lithuania. A shoeworker by trade, he had worked for the Field & Flint Shoe Co. for more than 40 years prior to his retirement six years ago. He was a member of the Lithuanian Citizens Club and the S. V. Roko Benefit Society.
Besides his widow, Magdalena (Maciauskiute), he leaves three sons, Zeno and Paul in Brockton, and Albert, stationed with the U. S. Navy in Cuba; four grandchildren, and a sister, Mrs. Beatrice Maneikis of Brockton.
Funeral services will be held at 1 P. M. Monday from the funeral home, 30 Emerson avenue, followed by interment in Melrose cemetery.
