Luchterhand, Alfred (2 MAR 1889 - 9 MAY 1928)

Alfred Luchterhand, a son of the late Karl Luchterhand, was born on the 2nd day of March, 1889, in the Town of Loyal In infancy he was baptized in the name of the Triune God and later was instructed and confirmed in the evangelical Lutheran Church by the Rev. W. Lange. To this church he remained a member unto his end.

In 1918, when the great world’s was broke out, he was among the number of those who served their country under the banner of the stars and stripes overseas. The deceased followed the vocation of farming, and for a period of 22 years was a co-partner with his brother, Mr. John Luchterhand working the home farm.

The deceased enjoyed fairly good health until a few days before his death. On Wednesday morning he yet brought out a lunch to his brother who was working in the field and upon returning to the house complained of being dizzy like and thought he would go up stairs and lie down and it seemed he just made the bed, when he was taken with a heart attack and suddenly was called out of this time to eternity.

His death was surely sudden and unexpected reminding us of the little verse: "Who knows how near my life’s expended." Let us hope that the deceased has entered that haven of rest which is in store for the people of God. The deceased attained the age of 39 years, 2 months and 7 days and now leaves to mourn his loss, two brothers and two sisters, namely: Otto Luchterhand, of Oakland, Oregon; Mrs. Helen Nichol of Madison; Mrs. Mathilda Schilling of Grass Valley, Oregon and John Luchterhand, the town of Loyal, other relatives and a host of friends who have our hearts sympathy in their bereavement.

Alfred was of a wholesome and upright character believing in honesty and fairness in dealing with his fellow men. His bright and sunny disposition won for him a host of friends who will sadly miss him. He was a kind brother and uncle and gladly sacrificed himself for another’s welfare.
