Louis E. Eroen Is Found Dead In Garage At His Home

Louis T. Eroen, 54, of 817 W. Lakeside st., a Madison resident for the past 30 years, was found dead on the floor of his garage at home at about 7 a.m. today by his wife, Fern, who is a deputy clerk in the Dane County treasurer's office.

Mrs. Eroen checked in the garage after her husband had failed to return to the house all night and discovered his body. She found the auto ignition turned on, but the motor had stopped. A physician who was called pronounced Mr Eroen dead.

Coroner Michael Malloy said the death occurred some time after 1 a.m. today, at which time Mr. Eroen talked on the telephone to a sister, Mrs. Jean Johns, 5701 Bjelde lane, Monona Village, clerk of Dan County Circuit Court.

Mr. Eroen had been employed at the Southern Wisconsin Produce Co. here as a public relations man and salesman for the past 23 years. He was a member of St. Mark's Lutheran Church here. He was born at Windsor, Aug. 8, 1906.

Besides his wife, and his sister, Mrs. Johnson, he is survived by a son, Terry Eroen, attending Michigan State University; three other sisters, Mrs., Betty Barraclough, 110 E. Dayton St.; and Mrs. Marge Weisenburer, 428 Gannon St.; and three brothers, Beroen, 3125 Hemina St.; Tex Eroen, 941 Dane St., and Norman Eroen, Windsor.

Friends may call at the Schroeder funeral home, 3325 E. Washington ave. here, from noon Sunday until time of services.
