Albert "Dutch" Engleson Obituary



Beloit Daily News 6 Oct 1931


ALBERT ENGLESON, WORLD WAR VET, DIES AT AGE OF 36

Served as Cook with 32nd Division in France During Great War

 

Albert Engleson, 36, of 1303 Vine street, died at Pinehurst sanatorium, Janesville, Monday night following an illness of many months duration. He had been in poor health since he left the army at the close of the World war, and for the last year had been steadily weakening.

 

Engleson who was known by many friends in this vicinity as “Dutch” was employed as a pressman at the Daily News until his last illness made it impossible for him to continue with his work. He served as cook for company L, 128th Infantry, 32nd division, during the World war, and his culinary ability brought many demands for his services at men's feeds and at parties.

 

Born in Milwaukee on March 20, 1895, Mr. Engleson spent much of his life in Beloit. He was known through his work in Company L before the World war, and he was an active American Legion man after the war. He went to the veteran's hospital at Milwaukee early last spring and was transferred to the Rock county tuberculosis sanatorium several months ago.

 

Besides the widow, the following survive: four children, Ralph, 11; Robert, 6; David, 3, and Norma 18 months; tow brothers, Niels, Beloit, and Ray, North Hollywood, Calif.; four sisters, Mrs. A. G. Anderson, Wilmar, Calif.; Mrs. I. Fanta, Manitowoc; Mrs. Rex LeBarron, Chicago, and Mrs. J. Bordner, Battle Creek, Mich.

 

A brother, Harry, also died from illness that developed while he was in service during the war.

 

Funeral services had not been completed at a late hour Tuesday.
