Funeral services for Henry G. Borgfeldt, long time resident and photographer of Wilmette, who passed away suddenly last Tuesday morning, were conducted from the Frederick E. Lewis funeral parlors Wednesday afternoon. Burial was at Graceland cemetery.

Mr. Borgfeldt's lifeless body was found in an ante room of the Brown building, where he had for many years maintained his studios, by H. H. Larsen, a barber in the same building. Dr. Rufus B. Stolp was immediately summoned and pronounced him dead. The body was removed to the Lewis Funeral parlors by Capt. Henry Brautigam of the Wilmette Police department, where an inquest scheduled for Tuesday afternoon was adjourned for two weeks.

Mr. Borgfeldt, who was 64 years old and was well known throughout the north shore, having established his business in Wilmette more than sixteen years ago, is survived by his wife, Angeline, two sons, Robert R. and Fred Borgfeldt, and a daughter, Mrs. Lillian Davis of Elgin, Ill.
