Azlin Killed In Accident
Funeral services for Floyd Wayne Azlin, 33, of Carnegie were held at 2:30 p.m. Saturday at the Pentecostal Holiness church in Carnegie with rev. Gerald Peters, pastor, officiating. Burial was in the Carnegie cemetery.
Azlin was killed in a freak accident Wednesday, November 12, at a Hobart salvage yard. He was fatally injured when the car he was working on fell and pinned him underneath. His head was crushed. He was attempting to remove a brake drum from the left front wheel.
Azlin had gone to Tink Morgan Salvage lot south of Hobart Wednesday to purchase a used brake drum, Kiowa County Sheriff Her Henderson, who investigated, said.
The sheriff said the owner was busy and told Azlin to wait and he would get the brake drum when he got time, but Azlin was in a hurry and asked permission to get it himself.
He told the owner he knew how to operate a wrecker and asked to use the company's wrecker to raise the front end of the car in order to remove the drum.
The owner went to look for Azlin when he failed to return, and found him lying face down at the front bumper, and the wrecker's cable was hanging loose beside the bumper.
Azlin had apparently raised the front of the car with the cable of the wrecker and probably was looking under the front of the vehicle when the cable broke loose and the bumper struck him in the back of the head, the sheriff said.
Azlin was born January 15, 1942 in Arkansas and was an employee at the Granite Reformatory.
Survivors include his mother, Helen Azlin of Carnegie; his grandmother, Ella Bledsoe of Carnegie; two brothers, Bill of Oxnard, Calif., and Joe of Carnegie; and six sisters, Jackie Edwards and Patricia Azlin of Carnegie, Betty Welch of Hobart, Kay Brierton of Lawton, Jean Wilson of Houston, Tex., and Louise Tucker of Anaheim, Calif.
