Lissack, Felix (1862? - 23 AUG 1912)

Felix Lissack, for twenty-five years or more a resident of the town of Thorp, Clark County, Wis., was killed on the railroad track at Owen on Friday evening last about 11:30 o'clock by being run over by the Velvet Limited trainf rom Duluth, as the train was entering the village from the north. Lissack, who seldom was sober, was evidently on his way to his boarding place and perhaps being sleepy lay down on the track and met his fate in short order. Deceased was placed on the black list here last March, and not being able to secure drinks left here for Owen a day or two later, where he has since resided. The body was horribly mangled and cut to pieces, but undertaker Griebenow of Owen, got busy and soon after the occurrence had the remains ready for burial. Undertaker M. Wiltgen and Marshal H. Leibole went to Owen Saturday forenoon, and upon their return here were met by several distant relatives of deceased, and the body was taken to the Thorp Village Cemetery and buried. Mr. Lissack was about fifty years of age, and came here from Kiel, where a sister, Miss Theresa Lissack, still resides. He also leaves a brother, Joseph Lissack, a resident of Seattle, Wash. Deceased was never married.
