Gardine, Peter Jr. (3 SEP 1868 - 7 APR 1898)

Died, at his home in this city (Colby, Clark Co., Wis.), Thursday afternoon, April 7th, 1898, Peter Gardine, Jr. in this 30th year.

Peter Gardine, Jr., was born near Stockholm, Sweden Sept. 3rd, 1868. He came with his parents to East Lake, Mich. When nine years of age. While quite young he entered the store of the R.G. Peters Lumber Co., and received successive promotions until he was finally made cashier and paymaster for the company. He was compelled to resign this position on account of failing health.

He was united in marriage at East Lake with Miss Etta Hutchinson, Aug. 1st, 1895, and shortly after went with his wife to Kansas and Colorado in hopes of regaining his health, failing in that they returned to East Lake, in May 1897, and in October the same year came to this place and resided here until the time of his death.

The remains were taken in a metal casket to his old home at East Lake, via Milwaukee and Ludington, leaving here Saturday night, after a short service at the house, conducted by Rev. S.A. Hoffman, and were met at Ludington by a deputavion of Knight of Pythias, of which he is an honored member. From here the remains were accompanied by Mrs. Gardine and her father Cyrus Hutchinson and Mrs. L.L. Cole.

Peter Gardine was a young man universally loved and respected by all who knew him, and of high social standing at home. He was a member of the Knights of Pythias, a member of the state militia and an honorary member of the Maccabees. His many friends will miss him but they will have the consolation of knowing that his pain and suffering has ceased. The young wife, who survives him will have the sympathy of a large circle of friends.
