He then became engineer at the furniture factory, later returning to the employ of the electric light plant. when the condensery was that plant, a position he retained until his final illness.

Mr. Landgraf was a man of most worthy and dependable character, faithful in the performance of every duty. His industry and efficiency as a workman, and his uprightness as a citizen, made him admired by all who knew him. He was a good neighbor and a kind and loving husband and father.

Mr. Landgraf was married in Neillsville April 10, 1884, to Miss Mary Elizabeth Morgan, who survives him. Three children were born to them, Leon, who passed away Dec. 4, 1918; Leroy of Neillsville , and Lesa, Mrs. W. E. Weast, of Greenwood. He leaves also four grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
