Rudolph Herman Dittner was born in Germany, Feb. 10, 1883. When at the age of four months he came to America with his parents, settling at Rockford, Illinois. The family remained there four years, then moving to Jefferson, Wis. After living there seven years they moved to town of Beaver, Clark County, Wis., where the father a few years later purchased an eighty acre farm. Here the family lived and Rudolph obtained his education.

On Oct. 8, 1908, deceased was united in marriage to Esther Engelbretson of the town of Beaver. Mr. Dittner later purchased a 40 acre piece of land near Loyal where they lived until a little over a year ago, when he traded the forty with G. C. Schultz for the building just east of the Kuethe Drug Store in Spencer and where he has since, until about six weeks ago, conducted a pool room and soft drink parlor.

Deceased began to fail in health about two years ago. He spent a few weeks last year in a hospital at Madison. About six weeks ago he was compelled to give up his business and entered the Marshfield hospital where he received four blood transfusions. As he continued to fail he was brought home. Just three weeks later he passed away.

Mr. Dittner, shortly after coming to Spencer, with a number of friends, drove to Medford, where he united with the Order of Eagles.
