Frank Andrews, 62, of Georgetown died today at 11:05 in City hospital from a 22 caliber rifle would in his right temple, termed suicide by County Coroner Arnold W. Devon.
Mr. Andrews, a former oil field worker, shot himself early today in the kitchen of his home after his wife left to feed the chickens, Mr. Devon said. Mrs. Andrews told the coroner her husband was unable to work since March, when he suffered a slight stroke that impaired the use of one leg.
Yesterday, a Pittsburgh physician told Mr. Andrews he would have to rest about a year before returning to work, his wife told Mr. Devon.
Mrs. Andrews told the coroner her husband was replacing a broken knob on a small dressing table when she left the house. She heard a shot and returned to find his body on the floor, she said.
The body was removed to the Stewart funeral home in Hookstown. Besides his wife, Mr. Andrews leaves two sons.
