He was searching in a dark closet for a pair of gloves when he bumped into he loaded rifle discharging it, the bullet struck him just below the heart. With him at the time of the accident, were his wife, Edna, and one-year-old son, Kenneth Jr., and his 11-year-old brother-in-law. He lived about 30 minutes after being shot.

For the past two years he had been operating a dray service and coal business here.
