Born in Marshall Township. He married Jean Ellen Tiegen on May 30, 1940, in Cresco, Iowa.

An Adams road contractor was fatally injured late Wednesday when an earth-moving machine backed over him.

Sigurd Osmundson, 37, died at St. Mary's Hospital, Rochester, at 4:30 a.m. today of a crushed chest and internal injuries.

The accident occurred on a portion of CSAR 6, in Lodi Township, three miles south of Highway 56, where the Osmundson firm is grading under a county contract.

Osmundson had gone back of the machine to set a stake, it was reported, when the earth-mover, operated by a nephew, David Osmundson, Adams, backed over him.

Others on the job quickly called to David to move forward while someone ran to the nearby Milo Roe farm, to call the Martz ambulance and Dr. H. P. Morse from LeRoy, about five miles east. The ambulance was called at 5:50 p.m.

Osmundson was conscious part of the time, Dr. Morse said.

Osmundson is survived by his wife, Jean, two sons, Darrel, 15, and Steven, 5, and a daughter, Janet, 17, his mother, Mrs. Henry Osmundson, Austin, a sister, Mrs. Douglas Briggs (Saralda), Austin and five brothers with whom he was associated in the contracting business, Earl, Herbie, Juel, Arthur and Lelenn. He was a World War II veteran and a member of Little Cedar Lutheran Church.

Funeral arrangements are being made by the Adams Funeral Home.
