Funeral services will be held Saturday afternoon from the Methodist Church at 2 o’clock, with the Rev. Virgil Holmes, pastor, officiating.  Burial will be made in the Neillsville City Cemetery.


Mr. Dux was born March 23, 1897, in the Town of Seif on the farm now owned and occupied by the Albert "Pete" Miller family.  He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Dux, pioneer residents of Clark County.


He attended the rural school in Seif, and grew to manhood while living on the home farm.  He served with the army in World War I and on March 24, 1927, he was united in marriage to Miss Estelle Humboldt, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Humboldt of the Town of Seif, the marriage performed at Greenwood.


The newlyweds went to farming in the Town of York on the George Begley farm and in 1932 moved onto the Ebbe farm.  A few years later they purchased a farm north of the present Marvin Ziegler farm, which they operated for several years.  In 1952, they moved into Neillsville.


Mr. and Mrs. Dux had two children, a daughter, Mrs. Manley (Erline) Walker of Junction City, and a son, DeWayne, at home.  Surviving also are three grandchildren; two sisters, Mrs. Frank Lange and Mrs. Henry Wasserburger of Neillsville; a half-sister, Mrs. Edith Schoengarth of Neillsville; a half-brother, Albert Menning of the Town of Hewett.


Mr. Dux was a member of the American Legion and the Neillsville Methodist Church.  He spent most of his life as a farmer and while in Neillsville worked for a time at the B & F Machine Shop.  He had been unable to work for nearly two years.
