(Note: Birth date taken from East Thorp Cemetery lsting)

Louis J. Kubera, route 1, Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), father of eight children, died of a gunshot wound in the neck inflicted with a deer rifle about 11:30 p.m. Thursday.

Clark County Coroner Robert Lulloff ruled the death a suicide. Investigating at the scene with Lulloff were Sheriff David Bertz and Ed Harycki, Thorp Police Chief.

Kubera returned home about 11p.m. Thursday from the Ford Garage in Thorp, where he was employed, and shortly afterward fired the shot which ended his life. His wife told authorities she tried unsuccessfully to snatch the gun from her husband before he fired the weapon in the living room of the Kubera home.

Authorities said they were unable to determine a motive for the shooting.

Rites for Louis Kubera, 36, Thorp, who died Thursday night of self-inflicted gunshot wounds, were held Tuesday, March 29, at 10 a.m. in the Thorp Funeral Chapel. The Rev. Edward Masalewicz officiated and burial was in the East Thorp Cemetery, where committal services were conducted by the Thorp American Legion Post Members.

Mr. Kubera, a veteran of the Korean conflict, was an employee of the Thorp Sales and Service.

Surviving are his wife and eight children, his parents and 16 brothers and sisters.
