Retired Candy Manufacturer Was 58 Years Old
Andrew James Bloomfield, 58 years old, retired Ann Arbor candy manufacturer, died Saturday night in an Owosso hospital.
Mr. Bloomfield, whose home here was at 430 Cross St., had been in poor health for several years. He had been residing with his son, James, in Owosso.
He entered the candy business in 1913, when he moved to Ann Arbor. He first was employed by the Busy Bee confectionary on S. State St., and a year later opened his own shop, known as the Bloomfield Candy shop, at 709 N. University Ave.
Mr. Bloomfield disposed of his retail business in 1918, and then established a wholesale candy business, operating from his Cross St. home. He retired in 1936.
Born March 6, 1881, in Romulus, Mich., he lived there during his youth and then moved to the northern part of the state, where he made his home until coming to Ann Arbor. He was married in 1910 in Moran, Mich., to Clara Luepnitz, who preceded him in death.
Member of St. Thomas
He was a member of St. Thomas Catholic church here, the Holy Name society, and Ann Arbor council of the Knights of Columbus.
He is survived by two sons, James Bloomfield, of Owosso, and Neil Bloomfield, of this city; a grandson; two brothers, Michael Bloomfield, of Detroit, and Theodore Bloomfield, of Monroe; two sisters, Mrs. Rose LeBlanc, of Detroit, and Mrs. Delia Roberts, of Ecorse; and several nieces and nephews.
Funeral services will be held at 9 o'clock Wednesday morning in St. Thomas Catholic church. Burial will be in St. Thomas cemetery. Friends may call after noon today at the home at 430 Cross St. The Rosary will be recited there at 8 o'clock Tuesday night.
