Deceased had left the Twin City only five days previously for an extended holiday with his four children in Detroit. He would have been 65 years of age on Monday next, April 5th. Born in Conestogo, the late Mr. Dahmer had lived all his life in Waterloo County. He was a member of St. John's Lutheran Church, Waterloo, and of the Canadian Order of Foresters. Besides his widow, four children, Oscar, Delbert, George and Mrs. Oscar Hintz, all of Detroit, survive him, together with eight brothers and five sisters.

Seven grandchildren also survive. The remains were received in Kitchener this morning by the Ratz-Bechtel Funeral Home, and services are announced for 2: 30 o'clock Monday from his late residence to Waterloo Mount Hope Cemetery. Rev. C.S. Roberts of St. John's Church, will be in charge of the services.
