Opferkuch was helping unload pulpwood on a railway siding near the Thorp newspaper office when the accident occurred. He released a tie chain and four or five logs rolled off the truck, one of them striking him. He lived only a few moments.
He is the son of Philip Opferkuch. He was not married.
The body was taken to Gilman for funeral arrangements.
