Friends may call at the funeral home where the Rosary will be recited at 7:15 o'clock this Monday evening by members of the Holy Name Society and Daughters of Isabella. Manitowoc Herald Times, Monday, June 1, 1964 p.5 ********* CHILDREN PLAY WITH MATCHES IN ABSENCE OF FAMILY, START FIRE AND HOME IS BURNED Fire resulting from the children playing with matches, while the parents were at church, destroyed the home and livery barn of Louis Pankratz at Valders Sunday and for a time threatened adjacent buildings. The fire completely destroyed the residence and barn with their contents and the loss will run over $4,000 with but one small amount of insurance. No stock was contained in the livery barn but it was used for storing the carriages and sleighs. The loss is a severe one for Mr. Pankratz as he loses practically all of his possessions in the fire. Neighbors and villagers organized a volunteer department and made every effort to save the Pankratz place but the fire had gained too much headway and it burned rapidly and it was impossible to check the flames.

ERVIN QUANTE Truck Rams Train, Valders Man Killed Cleveland (Special) - A Valders man was killed today when the truck in which he was riding skidded 160 feet into the side of a Chicago and Northwestern freight train. The victim, Ervin Quante, about 30, of R.1, Valders, died of a cerebral hemorrhage caused by a skull fracture. Quante was riding in a Lakeland Co-operative egg truck driven by Kennard Erickson, R.1, Valders, at the time of the accident. Erickson, hospitalized at Manitowoc with facial lacerations, and a possible arm fracture, told police he was talking with Quante and failed to see the train at the crossing until it was too late to stop. Dr. Theodore Teitgen, Manitowoc County coroner, said an inquest will be held. The driver's side of the truck, traveling east on County Trunk U through Newton, struck the train. It then was knocked into the ditch north of the road burying Quante under smashed egg crates. The victim started work with the co-operative Wednesday and was riding with Erickson to learn the egg route. Conductor of the north bound freight, C.A. Gratton of Green Bay, stated he was riding in the caboose and did not know of the accident until he saw the truck in the ditch. He then pulled the emergency brake. Thad Black, also of Green Bay, was the engineer. Ervin Quante moved to Valders from DePere a year ago and lived on a farm with his wife, the former Kathleen Frowley. The couple was married in DePere June 13, 1953. They have no children. Survivors are his wife, his parents, and a sister.
