Mr. Lovenguth was born September 14, 1893, on the farm homestead of his parents, Charles and Sarah
Roberts Lovenguth, a few miles west of this village, where he grew to mandhood and after his
marriage owned and conducted a farm near his parental home. His marriage with Miss Reba E.
Williams took place May 31, 1913, the Rev. Robert L. Rae officiating.
Four years ago Mr. Lovenguth gave up farming and moved into this village, after a time becoming
proprietor of the Esso filling station on Main Street. After a year in this business he sold out
and entered the employ of the Bentley-Wilson tennis racquet factory where he had been engaged
about two years. He was a popular workman, capable, painstaking and for the last two months had
been superindendent of the woodshop. His employers and co-workers speak highly of him and feel
that the concern loses a valued worker.
Besides his widow he leaves seven children, Donald, Utica; Robert, Carl and Lynn, Mrs. Herbert
Alguire, Mary Lou and Shirley, all of Camden; his parents, two sisters, Mrs. Roscoe B. Skinner
and Mrs. Lewis H. Burkett of Camden and three grandchildren.
The final rites were largely attended at the B. A. Sanborn and Son funeral home on Monday
afternoon at 2:30, with the Rev. B. A. Walton officiating. Burial was in Hillsboro Cemetery.
Those who acted as bearers were all fellow employes at the Bentley-Wilson Inc., and were Ralph
Ware, Lynden Fox, Benjamin Griffen, John Sampson, William Kotwica and Arthur Covel.
Attending the service from out of town were Donald Lovenguth, Utica, Mr. and Mrs. Dean Williams,
Mr. and Mrs. Leland Williams, Refield; Mr. and Mrs. D. C. Williams, Deansboro; Mr. and Mrs.
Albert Stedman, Mr. Lee Stedman, of Oseola; Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Roberts, Waterville; Mr. John
Lewis Sr., and John Lewis Jr., Pulaski; Mrs. Sadie McGinley, Miss Ann McGinley, Yorkville; Mrs.
Mary Smith, Williamstown.
