Cress, Troy Mills, is Drowning Victim PRAIRIE DU CHIEN, Wis. L. Cress, 53, Troy Mills, Iowa, foreman of the Linn county road department, drowned Sunday after he fell from his boat and was struck twice by the craft. Authorities said Cress' body was recovered from Lake Tilmont near the Mississippi river about six miles north of Prairie du Chien. Cress reportedly had boon fishing with his wife. He let his wife out of the boat and apparently fell out when he re- started the motor. Another group of fishermen saw his boat running unat- tended, then noticed Cress in the water. They were unable to get to him, however, be- cause of the uncontrolled Cress boat. Their boat was struck twice. Carl L. Cress, a Troy Mills resident 37 years, was a life- long resident of Linn county. He was born April 15, 1921, near Toddville, and was married to Vivian Ramsey Jan. 28, 1942, at Center Point. He was a member of the Troy Mills volunteer fire depart- ment. Surviving in addition to his wife are two daughters, Mrs. Keith Beresford, Cedar Rap- ids, and Mrs. Bruce W. Klendworth, Troy Mills; a son, Howard L. Cress. Troy Mills; two sisters, Mrs. Thomas McGowan, Marion, and Mrs. Owen Ward, Cedar Rapids; two brothers, Orval and Cur- tis, both of Center Point, and five grandchildren.
