He is survived by four brothers, William of Thorp, Nick of New Holstein, Joseph of Stanley, August of Thorp, and one sister, Mrs. Fred Fischer of Thorp.

Funeral services were held at the St. Bernard’s Catholic Church Monday morning at 9:30, Father Muckerheide officiating. Interment followed in the village cemetery.
