A friend from work has the habit of reading the day's death notices. Today he pointed out that a real Santa and an imitation Santa had died.
Henry Kraus Jr. was also known as "Santa" for the joy he brought to children while playing Santa at the Boston Store and throughout Ozaukee County. He died Nov. 30th at 91 years old. Two sisters preceding him in death were sisters. He was survived by fourteen grandchildren.
Santa La Porte also died Nov. 30th at 91 years old. She was also survived by fourteen grandchildren. She was the sister-in-law of Joe La Porte, former alderman, supervisor and mayor of Waukesha.
