He was born in Germany and came to this country in 1881, going first to Minnesota. Later he moved to Kansas and lived at Marion, Hutchinson and Albert. In 1893 he moved to Garfield, where he had resided since.

He leaves a wife and three children, Mrs. E. Butcher of Gainsville, Texas, Mrs. Deman of Dundas, Minn., and Max Hirdler of Great Bend. Mrs. Butcher and the son Max were with their father at the time of his death.

The funeral services were held at the house at Garfield Wednesday afternoon, Rev. Rutan of the Methodist church conducted the services. Burial was in Garfield cemetery.
