Milton Van Roekel, 49, Sioux County Recorder, died suddenly at about 7:15 Tuesday evening after suffering a heart attack.
Mr. Van Roekel was raking leaves in front of his home here when he had the attack. Mrs. Vernon Mouw, who lives across the street, saw Mr. Van Roekel fall to the ground. She immediately called a doctor, and Mr. Mouw went to see if he could aid Van Roekel. Mr. Van Roekel, however, apparently died almost instantly.
Funeral arrangements were pending here Wednesday morning. The Red Cross was contacting Van Roekel's son, Merlin, who is stationed with the Navy at Kodiak, Alaska.
Mr. Van Roekel is also survived by his wife; a daughter, Laura, 15; and a son, Roy, 6.
Mr. Van Roekel had served as Sioux County Recorder since 1936, and had been Treasurer of the Orange City Independent school district for the past 10 years, and was Treasurer of the Trinity Reformed church.
