Obituary : Clayton Stanley Hagadone
Clayton Hagadone Killed By Sand Slide
Clayton Hagadone, about 17, was killed some time late this afternoon by a
gravel slide that completely buried him in an avalanche of the fine gravel.
Hagadone had started to work for Arnett this morning, picking out the gravel
from the gravel bank and then helping load it on trucks. A truck coming for
gravel about 6:30, the driver noticed his coat lying in a pit and saw there
had been a slide. Sheriff Henry Traue was notified and immediately sent out
his deputies and about 20 men to assist in digging him out, not being certain
he was under the slide. The pulmotor was also sent along but when Hagadone
was found he was in a upright position with his head slightly bowed. The
pulmotor was used but to no avail as he had been dead too long. The gravel
pit is just a few hundred feet east of the place on the Granite highway where
Jacobson and Selle were injured in an automobile accident Saturday night.
Hagadone's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Hagadone, live on St. Clair Street and
Clayton attended school here, graduating from the eighth grade, since which
time he has been working at various places. He took the job picking the
gravel this morning and would have finished the work before the week was out.

Funeral Rites Here Friday
Funeral services for Clayton Hagadone, 18, were held yesterday from the Moon
Mortuary, the body being interred beside the body of his grandmother in the
family plot. The funeral was one of the largest held in Sandpoint for some

Clayton Hagadone was born in Culbertson, Mont., October 13, 1912, and moved
with his parents to Sandpoint in May, 1919, where he entered the city
schools, completing the second year of high school. He stopped school a year
ago to work for the Sandpoint Paint and Oil Company. During the past summer
he worked with his father on contract work in the woods. Clayton was one of
the first carriers of the Daily Bulletin when it started here a few years
back. He was also the first carrier on the Panidan. Clayton is survived by
his parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Hagadone, and by three brothers, Wilbur,
Johnnie and Wayne, two sisters, Mrs. Hobart Culley and Ada Hagadone. Miss
Hagadone attended the funeral from Lewiston where she is attending normal.
