      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, April 18, 1933 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Carpenter Child's Funeral Today - Killed Sunday By Adams Car - Funeral services for Arnold Glen Carpenter, 5-year old son of Glen and Elizabeth Dyke Carpenter, will be held from the home of the maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. George Dyke at Port Ontario, this afternoon at 2 o'clock. Rev. Lee A. Howe, Jr., pastor of the Pulaski Baptist church, will officiate and burial will be made in Willis cemetery. He was born in this village April 2, 1929. The grief stricken parents and grandparents of the little fellow have the sympathy of the entire community. The child met a tragic death about noon Sunday when hit by an auto near the farm of his grandfather, S. P. Carpenter, two miles north of Pulaski on the Watertown state highway. Arnold had gone to the farm with his mother and was at play with Shirley Cone, 7, daughter of Earl Cone, the tenant on the place. The children, according to statements of those who investigated the accident, were hand in hand near the shoulder of the road. A car being driven by Fred Ripley, a machine shop operator of Adams, approached from the south. He noticed the children before reaching the place where they were, and as he was about to pass them the little boy seemed to pull away from the little girl and ran directly in front of his car. He estimated his speed at the time at about 30 miles per hour. All efforts to avoid hitting the child failed. The little fellow was hurled some distance along the pavement, suffering a broken neck, a fractured skull and broken left leg. The little form was picked up by his uncle, Gerald Carpenter and rushed to the office of Dr. A. G. Dunbar in the Ripley car, and an examination disclosed that he must have died instantly. Assistant District Attorney Clarence J. Gorman and Sergeant H. F. Spellacy of the local sub-station of the state police made an investigation and after taking the statement of Mr. Ripley, he was released. The body was given over to Paul K. Foster, undertaker. The only eye witnesses to the tragedy other than Mr. Ripley, was the little Cone girl. There were other cars following the Ripley car and occupants of these saw the Ripley car swerve and the child rolling on the pavement, but could not state as to the movements of the child before being hit. These were Mrs. William Green of Saranac Lake, and Merle Balcom of Syracuse. The child is survived by his parents, grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. S. P. Carpenter and Mr. and Mrs. George Dyke, and great grandfather, A. Knight, all of this vicinity.
