Pioneer Gateway Stockman Dies at Pendleton

Gottfried Kampfer, pioneer Gateway stockman, died in a hospital in Pendleton Wednesday, according to word received in Madras that day.

The Gateway man was nearly 80, was born in Switzerland. He came to the United States as a young man and settled in the Gateway area in the 1890's. He had been a stockraiser on an extensive scale, but in the late years failing health forced him to curtail his activities.

Surviving relatives include a daughter, Mrs. Leo Hatch, who lives on Trout Creek, and another daughter in Portland.

Funeral arrangements had not been announced Thursday morning.
