Frankfort, Kansas, Index
Saturday, April 30, 1932

Hugh Massey, 39 was almost instantly
killed, this morning at 9:30 a.m. while
working on the bridge, which is being
erected across the Vermillion river,
three miles southwest of Frankfort. He
was operating the ropes across two
flanges when the fatal accident occurred
He was attempting to untangle the ropes
with the machine still in operation and
his hand was caught and pulled him into
the machine. An attempt to rush him to
medical attention, but death occurred
before they reached the physician’s office.

He was not afraid of hard, honest labor,
and was seldom out of out of work for
any length of time, because he was big
and strong and always gave his employer
a full, honest day’s work. He was a good
mechanic and plumber and there is
hardly a house in town that does not have
some of his work.

He talked to his friends about the war and
related his experiences while serving as
a cavalryman in France. He never spent
any of his time loafing, or knocking the
other fellow, and was never in any trouble.

Funeral service were held at Annunciation
Catholic Church in Frankfort on Monday,
May 2, 1932 at 9:30 a.m. with Father P.J.
Smith officiating.

Burial was in the Willow Hill Cemetery at
Frankfort, Kansas with Leo McMinimy
Post No. 181 of the American Legion in
charge at graveside.

He leaves to mourn his passing, his wife,
a son, Floyd Massey, daughter, Lozene;
father Mack Massey, Wamego, Kansas;
sister Mrs. Fred Diehl, Frankfort, Kansas.
