Retired Polk County judge drowns

Published 01/12/2009, Grand Forks Herald

A retired Polk County judge drowned this week while on vacation in Panama, his daughter, Jill Burggraf, said Monday. John M. Roue, 68, Crookston, died Sunday afternoon, she said. Roue was vacationing with his wife, Mary, at a friend’s villa. Burggraf said her father and stepmother were swimming when they were caught in an undertow. “She was able to escape it and Dad wasn’t. The water was waist-high, but Dad must have stepped into a hole or got caught or something.”
