Obituary: Robert Bradbury Killed Crushed in Logging Accident.   Funeral Saturday.
Telephone advices received by relatives Monday afternoon announced the death of Robert E. Bradbury, well known local boy in a logging accident near Kettle Falls, Wash. Where he had been employed in P. H. Smith’s camp since last summer. Harry J. Bradbury left in the evening for Kettle Falls and had the body brought home in charge of Cassedy’s. The funeral is announced to be held Saturday afternoon at two o’clock from the Community M.E. Church. The accident occurred about 2 o’clock Monday afternoon according to P. H. Smith, who was driving the truck load of three logs on the mountain road. The load upset unexpectedly and Robert who was holding the brake was thrown down and crushed under the heavy load. Mr. Smith saved himself by jumping and supposed at the moment that Robert had done the same. Death was instantaneous. Robert was 31 years old last December. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ed H. Bradbury, pioneers of this county. He was born here, attended the Rathdrum public schools and attained considerable prowess as a high school athlete, winning a gold medal at a state meet at Moscow. He was in the naval service on the Atlantic during the world war. He is survived by his bride of about a year, his parents, four brothers, and two sisters.
