Finder, Louie C. (10 September 1900 - 2 January 1962)


Funeral services have been tentatively set for Saturday afternoon from the Georgas Funeral Home for Louie Finder, 61, of Rt. 2 Neillsville, who died shortly after 7 p.m. Tuesday at his home.


Definite arrangements are being held pending the arrival late Wednesday of his son from Fort Benning, Ga.


Mr. Finder suffered a heart attack shortly after his evening meal. He did not feel well, and apparently suffered a second attack after the arrival of the physician and ambulance which was to take him to the hospital.


Mr. Finder several years ago remodeled the old Al-Aboard Café, which had been made from a railroad car and moved it from its location near the railroad tracks on Hewett Street to a wooded spot near McCarty’s Tavern in the Town of Levis.  In recent years he had driven a school bus.
