Alva Herbet Ikeler

1874- 1914


Watertown Gazette, 04 23 1914


Alva Herbet Ikeler died at 3 o’clock Saturday morning, April 18, 1914, at his home in West Main Street. 


Thursday night he was taken ill with a cold which aggravated kidney troubles, with which he suffered for years, and death followed swiftly.  The suddenness of Bert’s death greatly shocked our people, and expressions of regret were heard on all sides.  For many years he has been connected with the Commercial House [Wisconsin House?] cafe, and was not only well liked by all our people, but by the travelling public in general. 


Deceased was born in Boone, Iowa, August 11, 1874.  He came to Watertown about 11 years ago, and two years afterward was married to Miss Dora Tesch of this city, by whom he is survived, also by one little boy. 


Two brothers also survive, Eugene of Denver, Colorado, and Edward of Indianapolis.  Tuesday afternoon his funeral was held from his late home. 


The interment was in Oak Hill Cemetery.
