About seven years ago he retired from active business and he and his wife and youngest son moved to California and Long Beach, where he purchased a fine home, and had been able to enjoy the comforts of such a home and the climate of California to the fulllest extent.

He leaves to mourn his death his wife and five children, Lorenz, of Gilmore City: Mrs. J. B. Weiss, of Brookings, S.D.: Mrs. Louie Evers, of Denison: Mrs. P. C. Hollander, of Schleswig, and Andrew, of Long Beach. He also leaves two sisters, Mrs Henry Boyens and Mrs. Jurgen Petersen, of Denison.
