The death of Fred T langholff at the family home, 87 East Milwaukee ave, on Friday, Aug 22, 1930, at 6:50 p.m. marks the passing of another of Fort Atkinsons prominent businessmen.
Deceased had been in declining health since May 5, when he was teken seriously ill; later he was a patient at two Madison hospitals. But his decline during the last weeks was noticeable and rapid. Despite intense suffering, however, he bore his trials patiently comforted by the faith of his savior and by the self- sacraficing vigil of his loved ones.
Mr Langholff's memory will be chereished by his friends as a splendid type of citizen - one who labored untiringely for his family, gave liberally to their enjoyment and their comfort and participated in movements for municipal improvements.

During the past eighteen months he was also owner of the Langholff grocery.
Mr Langholff's success as a businessman may be attributed to his integrity, and to his implicit faith in the future of Fort Atkinson. Once determined upon a course of action, he gave the projuect his undivided and vigorous attention. This is also noticeable in the thoroughness of the various imporvements in which he participated during the past quarter of a century.
Deceased was born in our city on March 22 1874, and spent his entire life in Fort Atkinson. On July 16 1896, he was united in marriage whith Amollie Gums, the sorrowing widow. This union was blessed with two sons, Harry and Elmer both of this city. There is one grandaughter, Corrine Langholff, also two sisters, Mrs Henry Hoffmanand Mrs Fred Wandschneider, numerous other relatives and a large circe of friends.
The service was held Monday afternoon from the home on East Milwaukee Avenue to St Paul's Luthern Church, Rev Palmer Janke conducting the service, which also included several selections by St Paul's Ladies double duet. Many and beautiful rloral offerings gave silent tribute to teh love and esteem of sorrowing friends, who crowded the church. Local business houses were closed during the services.
