Holyoke Enterprise, Holyoke, CO, 2 Dec 1948




Otto Kullman passed away suddenly, Saturday afternoon, November 20, while on duty with the county road crew of District No. 1, and although he had been in ill health for several years, he had not complained and took care of his duties regularly.


Mr. Kullman was born on November 4, 1885 at Pleasant Dale, Seward County, Nebraska, son of Martin and Anna Kullman.

On March 27, 1908, he was united in marriage to Miss Anna Dunker and to this union one son and four daughters were born. In 1921 he and his family moved to Colorado and lived in various farming districts of the Amherst community. About four years ago he retired from farming and moved into Amherst, where soon after, he became affiliated with the county road department.


Mr. Kullman passed away from a heart stroke at the age of 63 years and 16 days.
