Lusk, Charles F. (30 MAR 1884 - 12 APR 1916)

Charles F. Lusk died at the home of Dr. Shepard at Minneapolis on Wednesday, April 12, 1916, of consumption, aged 32 years and 13 days. He was born in this village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.) on March 30, 1884, where he grew to manhood, and with an exception of but a few years has resided here. The malady from which he suffered attacked him about two years ago, making steady inroads on his health and consequently he became weaker and weaker until the end. Last Fall he, in company with his family, went to California, and later to Arizona, in hopes of bettering his condition, but to no avail, death had placed his shining mark upon his from whose grip there was no escape. Charley was a manly young man, alert in business circles, and would no doubt have made his mark had he been spared. The funeral, which was held at Fond du Lac on Saturday afternoon last, was held under the auspices of the Masons. Being a member of Thorp Lodge No. 264, A. F. & M., the pallbearers were selected as follows: W. J. Frank, Ross Bublitz, Frank Miles, Herman Stracker and Ross Lawrence of Thorp, and Roy Luther of Stanley, James O. Watson of Chippewa Falls served as master. Mr. Lusk was also a member of the Chapter at Medford and Commandery at Chippewa Falls, both of which orders besides the Blue Lodge at Fond du Lac were largely represented at the funeral, which was held from the residence of his grandmother, Mrs. George Lusk, in that city. Deceased leaves his wife and infant daughter, mother, Mrs. George Lusk, and numerous distant relatives.
