It died 1957 in Munich.

Its gift lay in in spontaneous speaking of bar hoar frost stories, which actually course-carried have or which he even experienced. It created it to build and appropriate with few sets of persons and things from its homeland represent in its stories its own Komik. Its friends were that they along-wrote in shorthand its stories secretly and him later persuaded to publish these stories he became in such a manner inspired the so-called “storyteller against will”.

Its stories are not in the Bavarian dialect, probably however of remind the Satzbau of the Bavarian dialect, which surely contributed to the large attraction of its stories.
