Thor Fikso Jr. of Elkader, IA moved on from this life on Sunday, January 15, 2017, at age 91.
Thor was born September 10, 1925, in Garber, IA as the second of two children born to Thor and Ruth (Wathen) Fisko. Following an active childhood as the ever-irritating younger brother to his sister Helen, Thor enlisted in the Army. He arrived in Europe on August 11, 1944, exactly 33 years, to the day, that his father, Thor Fisko Sr., arrived in the United States from Norway. He worked as a Field Lineman in Northern France and Central Europe during the war.
