MELVIN FINIS RICHMOND, OR TOOTSIE, AS HE WAS KNOWN, WAS KILLED ON THE SHELBY COUNTY SCHOOL BUS ON OCT. 10, 1941 WHEN THE SCHOOL BUS WAS HIT BY THE WESTBOUND TRAIN AT THE EADS RAILROAD CROSSING. HIS GRAVE IS JUST A FEW YARDS AWAY FROM WHERE HE DIED. HIS MOTHER LIVED IN THE HOUSE ACROSS THE STREET AT THE TIME AND SAW THE WHOLE THING. HIS BROTHER TOM WAS ALSO ON THE BUS AND SUSTAINED MULTIPLE SERIOUS INJURIES AS DID MANY OF THE CHILDREN. THE BUS DRIVER WAS ALSO KILLED.
