Huntzicker, Robert Carl (1881 - 1925)






----Source: Greenwood Gleaner 9/ /1925


The entire community was shocked and grieved to learn of the sudden death of Robert HUNTZICKER which occurred Monday evening, Sept. 21, at about seven o'clock. Mr. HUNTZICKER had not been entirely well for a number of years but had been up and around as usual on the day of his death. He has been a sufferer with diabetes for some time which had undoubtedly weakened the heart, causing his sudden death.

Mr. HUNTZICKER was one of Greenwood's most prominent citizens, was president of the Farmer Merchants Bank, and a very likeable citizen. His sudden death came as a great shock to the immediate relatives and friends.

He is survived by two brothers and one sister, beside many other relatives and friends. One brother, John HUNTZICKER, also died of heart failure on February 5, 1924.

***also, from a scrapbook, Source unknown:

Robert Carl HUNTZICKER, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry HUNTZICKER, was born May 23rd, 1881 at the home farm south of Greenwood and died at his residence in Greenwood, Sept. 21, 1925 at the age of 44 yrs., 3 mo., and 28 days.

His boyhood and manhood were spent at the home farm. He went to school at what is now Eaton District. Later graduated from the Business University at La Crosse, May 25, 1901.

He with the aid of his brother and sister continued the development of the home farm, considered one of the finest in Clark County. At the time of his death he was president of the Farmers Merchants Bank.

"Rob" HUNTZICKER was one of our most upright and useful citizens. Of rugged honesty, strict integrity and all the attributes of sterling character. His charity was as broad as his noble manhood. His loyalty was as true as steel, and his faithfulness to his duties and obligations and friendships were constant and unfailing. And we who knew him best knew that every leaf of his life was written clean.

He leaves to mourn his loss two brothers and one sister, William and Clara of Greenwood and Albian of Ivanhoe, Minn. Numerous relatives and hosts of friends.

The funeral services were held at the home Sept. 25, 1925, at 2:00 P. M. conducted by Rev. Black, pastor of the Presbyterian church in Marshfield and interment was made in the Greenwood Cemetery.

"I can not say and I will not say, that he is dead--He is just away. With a cherry smile, and a wave of the hand, he has wandered into an unknown land. And left us dreaming how very fair. It needs must be since he lingers there. And we, Oh we, who with wildest yearn for the old time step, and the glad return think of him faring on as dear in the love of There, as the love of Here. Think of him still, as the same I say:  "He is not dead--He is just away." James Whitcomb Riley
