You're very welcome!

Correct another look at the manifest indicates he was 32.

All males of age were required to register for the draft, but I find no indication that he served in WW I.

His occupation on the manifest is... Farmer Water Engineer? Well his hometown, Vrtobja, is located on a river

The surname still exists in that town, as found in the Slovenian online phone book
