Hubert, Alvin (1911? - 18 FEB 1929)
Sunday evening the people of this community were greatly shocked when word came to them that Alvin Hubert was dead. He left home Sunday afternoon about 2 o’clock with his 22 rifle and his snowshoes to hunt in the woods. About six o’clock his parents became alarmed because he did not return and called the neighbors to see if he had come to visit some of the boys but as he was not there, a searching party was organized and set out to find him. His body was found about 300 feet in the blueberry marsh by his brother Arnold about seven-thirty. He notified the rest of the party and they called Dr. Callahan of Spencer, who pronounced him dead. Otto Prechel took his team and took the body to the home. He was a president of his junior class at the Spencer High School.
It is believed that the gun discharged accidentally, the bullet entering above his right eye, killing him instantly. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Hubert. He was seventeen years old. Besides his parents he is survived by two sisters, Esther, Mrs. Leo Zupke; and Erna, Mrs. Anton Zorgradonik of Milwaukee; and two brothers Arnold and Arland at home. Funeral services will be held Wednesday afternoon.
The Tribune joins the many friends of the bereaved family in extending sympathy.
