I believe obit is from 1950 (taken from a newspaper clipping).
It reads as follows:
A.R. Kasten is dead at 68
Worked for Railroad
Albert R. Kasten, 68 an employee of the Milwaukee road for 45 years and general chairman of the system's boilermakers organization for 25 years, died Saturday at his home, 4327 N. 25th St. He had been ill for about 18 months.
Mr. Kasten was a lifelong resident of Milwaukee. He begain his service with the railroad as a shophelper when he was a young man. He was a boilermaker for about 20 years before being selected by the boilerworkers of the Milwaukee road system as their organization chief. He retired in July, 1949 because of ill health.
He was a member of the Boilerworkers lodge No. 302, the System federation No. 76, the International Brotherhood of Shipbuilders, Boilermakers and Helpers of America, Aurora lodge No. 145 of the Odd Fellows, and the G.U.G. Germania lodge No. 10.
Surviving are his wife, Catherine, a son, Albert W.; a brother Henry Kasten; three sisters, Mrs. Anna Kasten; Mrs. Mary Comdohr and Mrs. Rose Curtis, all of Milwaukee, and another sister, Mrs. Martha Risch, Anchorage, Alaska.

Any information regarding this obit would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. I visited Holy Cross Cemetery in Milwaukee and found his name in the office records, but he has no tombstone.
