'Benny' Schwartz, Retired Elkhart Businessman, Dies

Benold A. Schwartz, 77, a colorful and well known figure in the Elkhart Lake resort area for many years, died Sunday morning at Sheboygan Memorial Hospital.

Mr. Schwartz, who formerly operated an ice cream parlor and boat livery in the village, was brought to the hospital with a heart ailment about 10 days ago. Never having married, he had been living alone at 156 Lake St. in Elkhart since the death of sister, Adella, in March, 1962. Known as "Benny" to his host of friends among the villagers and summer residents of the lake, Mr. Schwartz and his late sister owned and operated the Tern and Anchor from 1910 until they retired and sold the business in 1950.

Benny, a native of Elkhart Lake, was "born" into the lake excursion business. His father, the late William P. Schwartz- known as "Cap"-operated several sightseeing boats on the lake well before the turn of the century. Among them were the Queen, the Hope, the Alma and the Ahoy.

'Toot Your Horn'

The Ahoy, originally an Italian banana boat, was brought to Elkhart Lake by the son folowing the 1934 Chicago world fair. It was equipped with a horn and bell. For many years, as the excursion boat circled the lake, youngsters on shore set up a chant, "Toot your horn and ring your bell!", and "Benny" always obliged. the cry became something of a legend on Elkhart Lake.

The boat was purchased and rebuilt by Fred Brummeyer of Plymouth in 1965.

Headquarters for the Schwartz fleet operated by Benny, and by his father before him, was a huge pier below the Tern and Anchor along the northeast shore of the lake.

Along with his excursion and boat livery business, Benny devoted much time to his favorite hobbies-oil painting and collecting Indian artifacts.

His home in the village contains an extensive collection of Indian arrowheads, tomahawks and other relics of early day Sheboygan County, many of which he picked up on his numerous hikes through the Town of Rhine countryside.

Among his oil paintings are several of French explorers coming down the Fox River to trade with Indians.

One Elkhart Lake summer resident who knew him well said, "Benny was a walking encyclopedia. He was well versed on the weather, flowers, fish, boats, and the outdoors in general. Although a great conversationalist, he was a modest man...and not a bragger.

During World War I he served overseas with the U.S. Army, following which he was superintendent of a now abandoned lime kilns north of the village for five years. He later lived in Chicago for several years.

Mr. Schwartz was born in Elkhart, March 27, 1890. His mother's maiden name was Louise LaBudde.

He was a member of World Cheese Center Post 5612, Veterans of Foreign Wars, at Plymouth, and for many years was a Boy Scout leader in Elkhart. An Episcopalian, he attended services in the small All Saints Chapel on the northwest shore of the lake.

Funeral Wednesday

His only immediate survivors are a brother, Arnold, and a niece, Mrs. Norbert Bloedorn, both of Milwaukee.

Services will be a 11 a.m. Wednesday at the Ballhorn Funeral Chapels here, with the Rev. Robert F. Sweetser, rector of Grace Episcopal Church, officiating. Cremation will follow.

Friends may call at the funeral chapels after 10 a.m. Wednesday.

A memorial is being established in Mr. Schwartz' name for the Elkhart Lake Boy Scout Troop.

Killed By Electricity

Mrs. Louis Stark of Crystal Lake met accidental death last Thursday morning, the news of her sudden demise causing a shock to the people of that communtity. Mrs. Stark was the wife of the well-known proprietor of the Island resort at that lake. It happened in the basement of the hotel at between six and seven o'clock, while Mrs. Stark was preparing breakfast. She went to the basement to get food which she was going to prepare, and Mr. Stark heard her scream and fall heavily to the floor. He hastened down to the basement and found her lying on the floor with no signs of life remaining. Dr. Hansen of Glenbeulah was hastily summoned and he did all that could be done to revive her, but without avail.

She apparently had taken hold of an extension wire and its lamp with the wire screen over it that was hung on the hook ready to be taken to the basement to be carried about. Beside the body was the wire screen and part of the electric fixture.

The county coroner, Dr. Van Zanten, was called, and after making a thorough investigation with the assistance of a competent electrician, he pronounced death due to electrocution.

Mrs. Stark was forty-three years old, and she was a great help to Mr. Stark in conducting their very popular resort. She leaves her husband and three children; Marie, aged 17, Walter, 16, and Ethel, 15 to mourn her untimely death.

He Will Be Missed. The untimely death of Dennis Schockmel of R.1, Glenbeulah, in an automobile accident Tuesday will come as a severe shock to his many friends in Sheboygan County and surrounding areas where he was widely known and well liked.

A cheesemaker by trade, he owned and operated the State Road Cheese Factory in the Town of Rhine for 30 years. At the time of his death, at the age 72, he was employed at the Town of Rhine cheese factory at Rhine Center. He was popular with and respected by his fellow tradesmen, and was a past president of the Sheboygan County Cheesemakers’ Association.

But it was through his interest in youth and his love for baseball that he got to know the most people and made the most friends. As a youth he played baseball and alter became president of the Kettle Moraine Baseball League, a position eh held for many years.

Hundreds of adults today, who as youths played on teams in that league, will tell you that he was the lifeblood of that organization and that there was always keen interest in the league and good attendance while he was head of it. Years later he managed the Armstorng Aces, a girls’ softball team.

Dennis, as he was popularly known, was also an ardent fan of the Sheboygan Chairmakers baseball team. Each year on the Sunday baseball opening day the directors of the team always held a dinner prior to a parade to the baseball park. He never missed one of those events and, whenever possible, was at the park rooting for the Chairmakers.

While quiet and somewhat reserved in disposition, he had a friendly personality that drew people to him. He was always ready with a smile and was always glad to see his friends. He was a fine gentleman.

Dennis Schockmel will be missed by the countless friends who had the pleasure of knowing him.
