OTTO FUSS DIES SUDDENLY---Otto Fuss died yesterday afternoon at his home on Carrington Street, of a complication of diseases, after an illness of but a week. The news of this sudden death is startling. It seems but a day or two ago at the longest that he was on our streets. A quiet, genial, wholesouled, pleasing gentleman; everyone knew him, and his cheery greeting, morning, noon, or night, was always warmed by the sunshine of his good nature. He did not seem to have special friends, for everybody was his friend. A good husband, the most loving of fathers, and a citizen whose integrity was above question, few men would be more generally missed at home and among friends and daily associates. Otto Fuss was the son of Jacob Fuss, the veteran clerk at the Wisconsin State Prison. He was born at Green Bay December 22d, 1860, and came to Waupun dwith his father's family in April, 1874. For a time he worked for E. Hauesen, then became an employee of M.D. Wells & Co., subsequently was for many years a guard in the prison, a position which he gave up on account of failing health and entered into the grocery business with his brother. Since disposing of this last he suffered with asthma to such a degree as to unfit him for labor. A year ago he accompanied his father to Florida where they passed the winter with little improvement to himself. A few days ago he contracted a cold which developed into the grip which combined with the asthma and a weak heart brought sudden and unexpected death. He was married to Mary Seeber of Lowell, Wisconsin, by whom he had four children, three of whom are living--Charles C., Fred. J., and Edward Garrels. Besides these their remains of the family, the widow, the grandfather, and two brothers Max and William.
