After laboring successfully in different charges, he died July 17, 1866. "Strict honesty and integrity were leading and marked features in his life and character. Father Gutelius was a great sufferer, but his sufferings never interfered with his duties. "He was an indefatigable worker, and a solid preacher. His sermons were always well prepared. He pleaded with his hearers like a man who expected to meet them at the bar of God. Indeed, he often reminded them of that meeting. He took a deep interest in all the benevolent operations of the Church, and was for a time connected -with the publication of its periodicals. His ministry was characterized by great earnestness and success." See Harbaugh, Fathers of the Ref. Church, 4:190. (D.Y.H.)
