Local Man Found Dead Along Road

Peter Anthony Hoffman, 76, of Crandon, a resident of Forest County for over 40 years, was found dead about 11 o'clock Sunday morning along a side road, a few hundred feet west of highway 55-32, at the north outskirts of Crandon. Mr. and Mrs. Lynn Feight of Range Line discovered the body in a water-filled ditch. They saw a hat floating on the water when they passed the scene with a load and reported it to the sheriff's office.
Coroner Dr. O.S.Tenley of Wabeno was called and after conducting an investigation with Sheriff Drank Sturzl decided that death was due to accidental drowning or a heart attack. Hoffman was reported last seen alive at about 3 o'clock Sunday morning and officials believe he fell into the ditch a short time later.
Mr. Hoffman was born Dec. 24, 1865 at Jericho, Calumet county and spent his childhood days at Unity. He lived at Statford at a time before his marriage to Katherine Collins at Webber Town on May 25, 1898. Shortly after their marriage they moved to Wabeno, where he held the office of town assessor. A short time later they moved to Laona when many of the public buildings were being built. Being a carpenter by trade he helped build the Hotel Gordon, Laona State bank, Club House, hospital and other Laona buildings.
His wife preceded him in death Jan. 3, 1936, and a son Mark, passed away at the age of two years. Surviving are two daughters, Mrs. A. W. Wenzel of Green Bay and Mrs. E.A. Spencer of Crandon; two half-brothers, Joe Hoffman of Statford and Albert Hoffman of Minneapolis, Minn., and a half-sister Mrs. Allan (Allain) of Marshfield.
Funeral services were conducted by Father George Kiefer at 9:30 Tuesday morning from St. Joseph's Catholic church, with burial in the Crandon Lakeside cemetery.
The pall-bearers were Jesse Ramsdell, Leo Samz, Harry O'Donnell, Carl Ashbeck,and Art Gruentzel of Crandon and Charles Marshall of Argonne.
Those from out-of-town who attended the services were Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Wenzel and son of Green Bay, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Hoffman of Stratford, Mr. and Mrs. Merlin Miller of Unity and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Marshall of Argonne.
