Funeral services were held at the First Baptist Church in this city last Friday afternoon, August 4, for Alfred Eugene Hardesty, 21, who lost his life in a traffic accident Wednesday night, August 2. The Rev. Vernon Sisco conducted the service and burial was in Maple Cemetery. H.S. Smith Funeral Home officiating.
Mr. Hardesty was born December 24, 1928, at Plattin, Missouri, the son of Mr. and Mrs. J.W. Hardesty. The family moved to Caruthersville twelve years ago and he attended the schools here, graduating in the class of 1947. He was graduated from Memphis State College this summer and had planned to enter dental school at the University of Tennessee for the fall term.
He is survived by his parents; one brother, Bernard Hardesty, Miami, Fla.; two sisters, Mrs. Tom (Edna) Damron of Memphis and Mrs. Tony (Dorothy) Lainez of Chicago; and his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Gus Hardesty of Delaplaine, Ark.
Mr. Hardesty died instantly of a skull fracture when the car he was driving and occupied by four other young people overturned on Highway 84 a few miles west of this city about 11:30 Wednesday night. The others had been to Kennett and had picked up Mr. Hardesty in Hayti to bring him home.
Three of them, Miss Pat Penney of Malden, Duffy Schult of this city and Fred Greenwell of Hayti received only minor injuries, although Miss Penney had not returned to her work at the Ark-Mo Power Company here early this week. The 4th, Miss Pat Bell of Hayti, remains in a hospital in Cape Girardeau for treatment for two fractured vertebrae and bruises on her face. Her condition is not considered serious.
