Adolph was injured in an accident at the age of 22, but that didn't stop his zest for life. He loved to visit with family, friends and neighbors and could always beat you at checkers and cards and took great joy in playing practical jokes. His laugh was infectious and he was the favorite uncle of his 33 nieces and nephews.

Adolph is survived by his sister, Veronia Schmit, St. Cloud, MN. He was preceded in death by his parents, his sisters, Leona Cox, Alvina Schlough, Velaria Kath, and Helen King, and his brothers, Lawrence and Edmund.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to St. Peter and Paul's Catholic Church.

Funeral Mass will be on Thursday, December 13 at 11:00 AM at St. Peter and Paul's Catholic Church, Mantador, ND with Rev. Peter Anderl as celebrant. Visitation will be one hour prior to the service at the church. Interment will be at Calvary Cemetery, Mantador, ND.

Arrangements are entrusted to Vertin-Munson Funeral Home, Wahpeton, ND.
