Hi, Thank-you I did but was hoping that there might be an obituary. I was hoping to find out details of where he was killed and if it was overseas or not. His family lived in Kootenai.
Thanks for your reply!!

I'll check the newspaper for you tomorrow afternoon. My services (and what this website is for) are free. The Site she is referring you to has a fee starting at $15.00. Funny there was no mention of a fee in the post.

I am thinking you might want to check Bonner County. Kootenai is a small town in Bonner County. I did check the Coeur d' Alene Press in Kootenai County and there was no mention. I do know there were several obits for Koffels in Bonner County. The county seat there is Sandpoint. I will have my mother check the newspaper there tomorrow to see if there was a death listed. Sorry I have nothing yet. :)

My mother needed help getting the newspapers off the shelf and there was no one else around. :( She goes back to the museum Tuesday and I will reminder her to check for it then. Sorry for the delay but we will try to find the obit for you.
