Mr. Filber was a pleasant man to meet, always having a smile and a kind word for everyone, his genial nature making for him many friends.
He leaves to mourn his loss a wife, two daughters, Mrs. George Rusch of Elgin, Ill., and Mrs. Barney Schultz of Wausau, a son having preceded him in death many years ago, four grandchildren, besides other relatives.
