Relatives and friends paid their final respects to A. H. Legault whose final rites were conducted from the Holy Rosary Church, Owen at 9 o'clock this morning. Father Brockman read the rites and burial was made in the family lot at Greenwood.

Mr. Legault had been a resident of Owen for the past 17 years, however for the past two months he had been hospitalized almost all the time, suffering from old age complications. Relief from his suffering came Monday, September 2, when he passed away at the Legault hospital. About two months ago he was able to be about the streets of the community and enjoyed many visits with his many friends of long acquaintance.

Aldrich Henry Legault was born on June 26, 1895 at Valley Field, Quebec, Canada. Practically all of his early life was spent in Canada where he attended high school and college at Montreal. In 1886 he moved to Black River Falls, residing there for one year before moving to Withee in 1887. Here he was engaged in farming and a logging business until 1919 at which time he moved to Loyal, making his home there for 10 years when he then moved to Owen in 1929 and has since resided.

Living within one's self wasn't a natural asset to Mr. Legault, as he was always active in community projects and government. During the period of time that he resided on a farm in the vicinity of Withee, he served as clerk of the Town of Longwood for 12 years, and as clerk of the school board for 17 years. He was also a member of the Knights of Columbus lodge.

Surviving him are four daughters, Mrs. Edward (Della) Regan, Chicago, Mrs. E. J. (Esther) Etta; Mrs. H. B. (Marcia) Palms, Washburn; and Mrs. A. C. (Mae) Buker, Greenwood; one son, Dr. G. A. Legault, nine grandchildren, Gordon, Lionel and Douglas Legault, John and Pat Regan, Valeria Humke, Robert Etta, Elaine Mech and Cy Buker, and six great grandchildren, besides a host of friends.
