Theodore Bach, the younger son of Jens Larsen and Casper Sene nee Justeen, was born March 29, 1868, at Wolsted, Denmark, where he was baptized. His mother died when he was three years of age; his father at this time moved to Haals, first, and then to Blenstrup. Here the growing lad was instructed in the Lutheran doctrine and confirmed. After his confirmation he attended and taught school for about six years. In the spring of 1893 he came to the inviting shores of the United States and settled first near Beatrice. After two years he moved to Nuckolls county (sic), where he was engaged in farming until he moved to Chadron in spring of 1930.
He returned to the home of his birth in 1907 on a visit. On July 10, 1908, he was united in Holy Wedlock with Miss Dorothea Andresen at Nelson, Nebraska. To this union nine children were born, two of which preceded their father in death, a boy and a girl. Six of the children: Holgar, Elna, Einar, Harold, Alvin and Edith are at home. Einar is at present attending Concordia Theological Seminary at Springfield, Ill.) The oldest daughter who is now Mrs. John Malpert lives at Cadams.
The deceased departed this life April 7th at ine (sic) o'clock, at the age of 71 years and 10 days. He leaves to mourn his departure, besides his sorrowing widow and children, one brother, Nels Larsen of Chadron, and three half-brothers, two grand children, nieces and nephews and many other relatives and friends.
The immediate cause of his death was pulmonary congestion, after an accident in the field while discing.
The funeral service was conducted from the Lutheran church (sic) (Chadron) of which he was a deacon for many years. Monday, April 10, Rev. Carl H. Wolf officiating, basing his remarks on the text: St. John 11:25-26 "I am the resurrection and the life; he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live; and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?" By request the following beautiful hymns were sung by the entire assembly: "Alas, and Died My Savior Bleed" "Abide With Me," and "Asleep in Jesus"
