The body of Albert Cornelius Hoeksel was brought to this city last Saturday morning for burial.
Albert Cornelius Hoeksel was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan, February 12, 1910. After living there a year, he moved with his parents to Orange City, Iowa, where he lived until 1915, when he moved to Hartley. He lived here for ten years, and in October, 1925, his parents and family moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan.
In 1915 he became ill with infantile paralysis, which he suffered from until his death in the state tuberculosis sanitarium at Howell, Michigan, May 8. He had been in the sanitarium for four weeks at the time of his death. He was 18 years, 2 months and 26 days of age at the time of his death.
He leaves to mourn his loss his parents, Mr. and Mrs. J.J. Hoeksel of Grand Rapids; one brother, William Hoeksel of Chicago, and three sisters, Tina, Mary, and Louise, at home.
Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at the Methodist church and interment was in Pleasant View cemetery.
Albert will be greatly missed from the family circle, as he was of a very cheerful disposition in spite of his great affliction.
Mr. and Mrs. Hoeksel and son William accompanied the body to this city. William joined the navy just two weeks ago and is stationed at the Great Lakes Training Station. He was granted a furlough at this time. Mr. and Mrs. Hoeksel and William returned home Monday evening.
