Joseph Alvin Engberg (1877-1963)

Joe was born on the family farm in Stockholm section 8. He worked as a carpenter. In 1908, he was selected as the foreman of the Baptist church construction project. Joe never married, was very serious, and did not spend much time smiling. He was very tall and had difficulty sitting in a regular church row. He found his favorite spot back in the far corner of the auditorium where he could stretch out his long legs. Joe was a person whose word you could trust. He and his younger sister Lillian lived out their later years in Kiron. Joe died in 1963 and is buried in the Kiron Cemetery.
