In the year 1925 he and his wife moved to Farmersburg, where he spent the rest of his life. He was never sick nor never complained until January 24, 1927, at 3:30 a.m., he awoke and said he had pain in his side and at 4:30 he passed away at the age of 63 years, 11 months and 15 days.

The funeral was held at St John's Lutheran church at Garnavillo, Rev. K. Wm. Braun officiating. Burial was at Farmersburg cemetery.

"Our loss is great we'll not complain
But trust in God to meet again,
Our hearts are sad with pain;
Oh, this would be heaven
If we could hear your voice again,
Sometime, somewhere our hands will
clasp his
And we'll never say farewell."
