Herman Metzger Dies Of Injuries

Herman R. Metzger, 53, Soo Line agent here for many years, passed away at 5:30 p. m. Monday at the Medford Hospital of injuries received in a traffic accident south of Medford on Highway 13 late Sunday night.

Death was reported to have been caused by internal injuries and a compound skull fracture.

He was born in Wisconsin Rapids April 28, 1894 and married the former Blanche Reas, of Spencer. He was a member of the Masons, the Lions, and Modern Woodmen of American and a Village Trustee.

Surviving besides his wife are one son, William, of the village and a daughter, Mrs. George (Theone) Rieler, Milwaukee; a sister, Mrs. John Peters, Wisconsin Rapids and two grandchildren.

The body is at the Swarthout Funeral home and final funeral arrangements have not as yet been made. It is thought that services will be held either Friday or Saturday afternoon but possibly not until Monday. This is uncertain as they hope Mrs. Metzger will be able to attend the funeral of her husband.
