Elderly Pedestrian Injured by Auto.
Nov 24, 1955
Lee Earl Dean, 72 of Hayden Jct., Arizona a retired Southern Pacific yard foreman, was injured when struck down by a left-turning car last night at N. Stone avenue and W.Alameda street.
Dean was taken to St. Mary's Hospital for treatment of left leg fractures and head and chest injuries. He was not thought to be critical at the time.
City police were not notified of the death until yesterday.
Dressed in dark clothing, Dean was walking south in a pedestrian crosswalk when a northbound car driven by Joe Culver Driscoll, 36, of 832 S. Catalina Blvd. turned left and struck him. The driver estimated his speed at 10 miles
an hour. He was cited by police for failure to yield the right of way to a pedestrian.
Dean lived in Tucson three weeks, at 25 W. Simpson St.
An Arizona resident 32 years, Dean leaves a daughter, Mrs. Patricia Dean Brown, San Manuel; two sisters, Mrs Bessie Higgenbothon, McFarland, Calif., and an inidentified sister, and a brother, Edmond Dean, a California resident.
Funeral services are being handled by Reilly's Morturary.
Lee Earl Dean is buried in Section 35, Block B, Row 1, Plot 387, but there is not a headstone or marker. However, it does not mention in Evergreen's records that there is not a headstone. When I went back to their office a second time, they printed out a list of all the individuals buried in Row 1. In this particular row, there are several graves that do not have headstones or markers. Lee Earl Dean is buried to the right of Nicholas A. Karkazis, and to the left of Thomas Marcheff. But, all three graves do not have markers. Lee Dean's grave should be directly in front of the headstone for "Cyrus Walter Davis, Jr." (located in Row 2).
