FRED DODGE DECEASED
Passed Away on October 28th at Training Camp
Fred Dodge, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Dodge of this city, passed away at the soldiers training camp at Camp McArthur, Waco, Texas. His remains were brought to this city today and will be interred in the Catholic cemetery.
Fred Dodge was born at Avoca, Wis., on September 2nd, 1896. He resided there with his parents until 1910 when the family came to Ruthven. He resided here until September of this year, when he heard the call of his country, and went to Camp Douglas, Wis., where he offered himself to his country. He was later transferred to Camp McArthur, where on Sunday, October 25th, 1917, he passed away after two weeks illness. He was a competent, steady young man, was kind hearted and likeable and respected by all. He will be greatly missed by his family, and America also suffers a loss, a loving son and brother and a good clean soldier. While he did not die fighting for his country, he passed away while straining every effort to fit himself to become one of those who are now risking their lives daily in the trenches. His name will be numbered among our soldiers and his loss will long be felt by his relatives and friends. He leaves to mourn his loss, besides his mother and father, four brothers, Raymond of Camp Robinson, Sparta, Wis., Gardner of Spring Green, and Robert and Joseph of this city, and two sisters, Mrs. Leonard Miller and Mrs. Bert Miller of this city.
The Free Press joins with the many friends of these bereaved relatives in extending sincere sympathy.
