Walter P. Crane, Former Mayor of Kingston, Is Dead
Walter P. Crane, 83, who held the distinction of being Kingston's friendliest mayor, died Friday night at his residence, 163 Green street.
Despite his years, Mr. Crane had continued his daily walks during which he greeted the public, and chatted with many who cast their votes for him in the days when he was one of the city's leading political figures.
Mr. Crane served two terms as mayor, 1907-1909 and 1922-1923. He was also postmaster of the city.
As a businessman of Kingston, he was a partner in the former firm of Crane & Shultis from 1900 to 1935.
Through his political and business connections he met and made many friends who held him in high esteem. 
After he retired from active life, "the mayor" as he was generally known, continued his daily walks about the city and seemed to take particular delight in saying a friendly hello to those he met.
Mayor Crane was proud of having been one of several men sent from the Ponckhockie section to the city hall to occupy the important office of head of the city.
For years after he retired he continued his residence in Ponckhockie, but moved last September to the uptown address, 163 Green street.
Surviving are two sons, Robert H. Crane of Kingston and Webster H. Crane of Riverhead, L.I.
His funeral will be held from the chapel of A. Carr & Son, 1 Pearl street, Monday at 2 p.m. Burial will be in Montrepose Cemetery. Friends may call at any time.
