Birth: Mar. 3, 1880, Germany
Death: Jan. 27, 1913
Summit County
Ohio, USA

Born in Bredenfelde, Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Germany, Wilhelm Friederich Ludwig Dörnbrak was the son of Sophia Spietz and John Dörnbrak. Immigrating to the U.S. with his parents and brothers in late 1884, they settled in Orrville, Ohio and he changed his name to William John Denbrock. As a young, single man, starting in 1900, he lived with his brother, Charles, in a succession of boarding houses on Chestnut, Exchange and Brown streets in Akron. Hired in 1907 by Goodyear Tire and Rubber, William quickly rose to the responsible position of foreman.
He married Pearl Roundy on September 29,1908 and they had no children due to his untimely death. William passed at the young age of 32 after being struck by a streetcar near his home on North Hill in a horrible accident. The Akron Beacon Journal noted that "Mr. Denbrock...was well known in the city and was also held in very high regard by the men who worked under him."
