Funeral services for Alvin W. Kirtley, 34 years of age, were held Friday afternoon at 3:00 o'clock at the home of his parents, Rev. and Mrs. W. A. Kirtley, Meader Street. The services were conducted by the Rev. Harvey Morrison assisted by the Rev. Abraham Berry. Burial was in Brookside. Kirtley was killed Wednesday night on Preston Highway enroute into Louisville when the moving van in which he was riding was sideswiped by a drunken driver. Kirtley jumped from the cab and the truck overturned on him, killing him instantly. He was moving furniture to their new home in Louisville at the time. A former worker at Charlestown, he had recently purchased a home in Louisville. Kirtley professed faith at the age of 12 years and united with the Campbellsville Baptist Church. He was married to Helen M. Hoagland in 1939, who survives him. Besides his wife and parents, he also leaves four brothers and a sister: Ezra Kirtley, Robert Kirtley, and Mrs. Mattie Constant, Campbellsville; Frank Kirtley, Magnolia; Gatton Kirtley, Manerva, Ky. The pallbearers were Ezra, Frank, Gatton and Clement Kirtley, Walker Myers and C. R. Benningfield. Flowerbearers were Lula Chaudoin, Mrs. Louise Raley, Miss Tina Kirtley, Mrs. Christine Kirtley, Mrs. Mildred Myers, Mrs. Novela Nall and Mrs. Juanita Cummings.
