Larsen, Hjalmar (1882 - 20 NOV 1920)
The sudden death of Hjalmar Larsen Saturday afternoon, came as a great shock to the people of Evan.
Mr. Larsen conducted his business on Saturday and was in his usual health when seen a few minutes before his death. He had just shaved a man and another customer coming into the place of business a few minutes later found his lifeless body, heart trouble being the cause of his death.
Mr. Larsen was born in Denmark thirty-eight years ago. He worked around Evan for a number of years, going from here to North Dakota, where he spent some time, returning to this place three years ago, since which time he has been engaged in the barber business and also operating a pool room and confectionery business. He was honored by his fellow townsmen on being elected to the office of mayor, which office he held at the time of his death.
The deceased leaves to mourn his death, one brother, George of Neillsville, Clark County, Wis., and an uncle and Aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Soren Larsen of Evan. Funeral services were held in the Danish Lutheran Church Tuesday afternoon, Rev. Werner of Sleepy Eye officiating. The remains were interred in the Brookville Cemetery. (Sleepy Eye, Minn.
