John K. Arps --- Tri-County Record --- April 29, 1937

Funeral services for John K. Arps, former resident of this city and Kiel, who died at his home in Oshkosh at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday from a stroke of apoplexy, were held at the Erbe-Hoffmann Funeral Home. Rev. A. G. Schmid officiated and burial was made in the local cemetery.

The deceased was born in this city on April 29, 1866, the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. John H. Arps, who were among the early settlers here. He was married to Miss Adolphine Thiesssen on February 16, 1889. He operated several farms in this vicinity and in 1916 moved to Chilton, where he conducted a farm implement business. Gradually, out of the farm implement business grew the Duo-Safety Ladder Corporation, which was operated by himself and his son, Edmund J. In 1934 they moved the business to Oshkosh, where they have operated since with the father serving as vice-president up until the time of his death.

Survivors are his wife; his son, Edmund; a daughter, Mrs. Robert Heiner of this city; two brothers, Charles X. of Milwaukee, and Fred of here; two sisters. Mrs. Henry Weber and Mrs. Henry Schmidt of here; and four grandchildren. Mr. Arps was a member of the Odd Fellows Lodge, and members of the lodge served as pallbearers.
