Langjahr, Oliver J. (29 JUL 1895 - 30 SEP 1918)

Last Thursday morning our community was again shocked with grief when the telegram came announcing the death of Private Oliver J. Langjahr, who passed away at the Military Hospital No. 21, Paignton, England, Sept. 30, 1918, of pneumonia.

Oliver Langjahr was born at Kiel, Wis., July 29, 1895 and came to Colby, Wis. with his parents nineteen years ago, and this city had been his home until he was called for military service. During the past four years he was employed by H. J. Welsch, proprietor of the Colby dray line, and was a capable and conscientious worker. His cheerful and honest ways gained for him the lasting friendship of all. He was called into service and left for Camp Grant the 25th of last July and went overseas Sept. 12th.

He is survived by his father Otto W. Langjahr, and brothers Arvin and Otis, and his twen brother Elmer, who is somewhere in France. The many friends here will miss this brave soldier boy and the deep sympathy of all goes out to his bereaved ones.
