Linderud, Ole (1863? - 16 AUG 1927)
Ole Linderud dropped dead Tuesday night about 2 o'clock as the result of an over-taxing heart. He has been acting chief of police and was doing night work and had been at the depot when the 2 o'clock train was due. George Begley phoned to the depot requesting that Linderud come out of his house just north of town, as there were three suspicious looking men parked in the road nearby. Ole hurried up to the city hall to get his car to run out to the Begley place, Glynn Stoffel meanwhile phoning for Policeman Fred Rossman to meet Linderud at the city hall. When Rossman reached the hall, Linderud was having trouble with his Ford and had been cranking it quite strenuously. He evidently felt the effects of the over-exertion, for he started to walk away and as he reached the alley at the side of the city hall, he suddenly sank down to the ground. Rossman was at his side at once and immediately called doctors, but Linderud had evidently died almost instantly.
The death of Linderud will be a very severe shock to his many friends in this city. He had been on the police force for the past few years and had been a resident of Neillsville for man years, having been employed at the Neillsville brewery years ago. He was 64 years of age and was a mighty fine man. Born in Norway he came to this country when a young man. He was a kind-hearted genial man, thoroughly reliable and trustworthy. He is survived by two brothers, Andrew of Scout Lake, Sask., Canada, and John of Cochran, Wis. He is also survived by two nieces.
Funeral arrangements have not been made yet, as burial will no doubt be delayed until the arrival of Andrew Linderud.
