Please help w/obit, Anton V. ALTMANN c. 1935

Can anyone please locate an obituary for Anton V. ALTMANN of Syracuse who died around 1935? I haven't been able to find one online. He was the founder of Altmann Bottling Company/Altmann & Sons. I would also like to find one for his wife, Wilhelmina NUTZ ALTMANN and/or her father, Martin NUTZ (died before 1903), but I don't know when they died. Can't find these online either.

Thanks so much.
