This is C. W. (Charles William) Weck. He was born in 1855 in Oshkosh Wisconsin. He moved from Toppenish to Glenwood in 1914 and opened a meat market and grocery store. He passed away December of 1935 in the Hood River hospital. His obituary says he had dislocated his hip, ten years ago and died from complications that set in.
He was married to Josephine Hayes Weck who preceded him in death in July 1935
He and his wife are buried in Toppenish.
The Weck Store survived the 1933 fire.
Mr. Weck was the father of Mildred DeVries.
We used to play pinochle with Mildred. She lived in an old house next to Truman Keel's home, across from the State Building.

The November 01, 1928 Glenwood News in the Goldendale Sentinel says:
" Wm. Weck left Monday the past week, for Moffett Springs for a vacation and to take baths at he springs. He will be absent a couple of weeks. Mrs. Henry Hansen is helping the store during his absence."
Moffet Springs is Bonneville Hot Springs.
