Palatka Times-Herald, Friday, 19 September 1941
St. Augustine - Mrs. Julia A. Athey of this city left Tuesday morning by plane for Tucson, Ariz., called by news of the death of her son, William Evans Athey, 26, who was killed in a plane crash Monday afternoon. According to news received here, the accident occurred while young Athey was on a pleasure flight with a companion who was also killed in the crash.

Survivors are his mother and four brothers, Emerson of Tucson, John of Jacksonville, Clifford and Edward, both students at the University of Florida.

News of the tragic accident was received with regret in Palatka, as young Athey was well and favorably known here. His mother, Mrs. Julia Athey, is a sister-in-law of Mrs. Floried Evans of Palatka and St. Augustine, and once resided here for several years with her relatives, the Evans family.
