In Reply to: Eileen Buresh/Ketarkus 1920-1942, Racine, WI by John Ketarkus of 550

Racine Journal Times
January 24, 1947

John G. Buresh, 73, alderman of the Tenth Ward for two terms and active in WPA and relief movements here in the '30s, died Thursday at the National Carpenter's Home, Lakeland, Fla. His funeral will be held there Tuesday. Mr. Buresh, one of the founders of the cooperative movement in Racine, was a carpenter by trade and did not get into politics until 193 when he was elected alderman of his ward, serving in 1932-33 and again in 1936-37. He was a champion of the needy and worked hard on programs which would give them adequate relief. He also supervised several WPA building projects during those days. Born in Marinette, Wis., Mr. Buresh came here with his parents when he was a young boy and resided here until four years ago when he entered the national home for retired carpenters at Lakeland, Fla. His wife died 10 years ago and his only daughter died a short time ago. Survivors include two step-sons.
