Richard Tack Dies of Heart Attack Monday

Richard Tack, 74, died of a heart attack Monday at about 1:30 p.m. in his car, which he was driving to his son's farm. He suffered the attack two miles north of Wellsburg near the Henry Maas farm and his car left the road and went into a ditch but did not overturn.

Funeral services will be held Thursday, August 11 at 1:30 p.m. at the family home and at 2 p.m. at St. Peter's Evangelical and Reformed Church northwest of Wellsburg. The Rev. E. H. Buschman of Grundy Center will officiate. Interment will be in the cemetery adjoining the church.

Mr. Tack, the son of Philip and Ella Raske Tack, was born in Ostfriesland Germany, September 7, 1885, and came to this country in 1892 at the age of six years.

He and Etta Lindaman were married January 15, 1908, and they farmed in German township six and a half miles north of Wellsburg. In 1953 they moved to their home in Wellsburg.

Mr. Tack received his education in Pleasant Valley, Grundy County. He was a member of St. Peter's E. and R. Church.

In January, 1958, he and Mrs. Tack observed their fiftieth wedding anniversary. Mr. Tack had been hospitalized for a heart condition at that time, so they did not have the big celebration that had been planned. Since that time he appeared to have recovered his health to a great degree.

Survivors include his wife; five sons, Harvey of Aplington, Melvin of Holland, Lawrence of Waterloo, Dale of Holland and Kenneth of Wellsburg; seven grandchildren, three great-grandchildren and two brothers, Phillip and Weyo Tack of Grundy Center.

Preceding him in death were his parents, three brothers, Sievert Muller, Hans Muller and Will Tack.
