Auto Upset Proves Fatal of Former Blairite

Anthony Frank Healey, son of Patrick Healey of this city, was killed last Sunday when an auto which he was driving turned over at Casper, Wyoming. The deceased was born at Hay Springs, Nebraska on December 8th, 1890, and his boyhood was spent in Nebraska. He was reared in Blair and volunteered to serve as a musician in the late World War. At the close of the war he went to Casper where he has since made his home.

Mr. Healey was a man of sterling qualities, respected and loved by a host of friends who mourn his untimely demise. He was a member of the Blair band while he lived in this city, and since living in Casper he had been engaged in band and orchestra work. He has been president of the Casper orchestra organization for the past five years, and played a trombone in a large orchestra in that city. He was engaged in auto sales work at Casper up to his death. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus and also the American Legion.

Surviving him are his bereaved father, Patrick Healey of this city; a daughter, Helen of Sioux City, Iowa; and six sisters, Mrs. W. P. East of Sheridan, Wyoming; Miss Catherine Healey of this city; Mrs. A. H.
