Glenzer, Ronald (1916? - 2 MAR 1965)

Ronald Glenzer, 48, Stanley, died at Victory Memorial Hospital in Stanley at 3:30 a.m. Tuesday of injuries received in a car accident Sunday night near Owen (Clark Co., Wis.).

County Traffic Officer Frank Sarafin reported to the Thorp Courier editor that Glenzer, who did not appear to be seriously injured, died of internal injuries following surgery.

According to Officer Sarafin, who investigated the accident, a car driven by Julius Morgan, Thorp, was headed west, pulling a car in which Edward W. Walczyk, also of Thorp, was riding.

Something apparently went wrong with the tow-bar which connected the two vehicles and Morgan stopped to inspect it.

Glenzer's car was traveling west, stuck the side of the Morgan car, then sideswiped the second car before crossing the road and going over the south ditch.

According to Sarafin, the lead car was stopped on an angle toward the road right-of-way. A jack, which was being used on the lead car to apparently get the stalled car going, was found 62 feet in the field from the impact of the accident.

Morgan, seeing the fast approaching car, ran up the highway to wave the Glenzer car down, but had to jump into the ditch when his efforts failed, the officer reported.

The accident occurred about 7 p.m. three miles east of Owen on Highway 29.

Rites for Glenzer will be held Friday at 2 p.m. at Epiphany Lutheran Church at Stanley, the Rev. R.W. Olson officiating. Burial will be in Evergreen Cemetery.

He was born in the town of Green Grove, Clark County, served in the Army during World War II, and had been employed by the Northern States Power Co. of Owen since his military discharge.

Surviving are his wife, the former Dorthy Kibble, whom he married May 4, 1946; two sons and two daughters, Glen and Gary, Lynn and Sharon, all at home; four brothers, Fred, Curtiss; Huber, Owen; Harold, Colby; and Walter, Genesis Depot, Wis.; one sister, Mrs. Rudy Heyer, Wausau.
