THE FLAGLER TRIBUNE
Thursday, January 11, 1940
Herman Phoda Pellicer, son and Mrs. Phoda P. Pellicer of Bunnell was instantly killed Wednesday afternoon shortly after four o’clock in a truck accident near National Gardens.
Mr. Pellicer was employed by the Wolfe Construction Company, of St. Augustine, on a road paving job between Korona and Ormond. He was transporting material from National Gardens to the Daytona-DeLand road project when the accident occurred.
It is supposed that the truck went out of control on a sharp curve on a narrow paved road between National Gardens and State Highway 4. He apparently was thrown from the truck against a tree the distance of about twelve feet:
Mr. Pellicer was 21 years old and had been a resident of Flagler County all his life. He was the oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Pellicer. He is survived by his parents and two brothers, Walton and Edwin also of Flagler County.
Funeral services will be held at two o'clock 'Friday afternoon in Crescent City.
Pallbearers are Jimmy Salyerds, Z. G. Holland, Jr., Danny Harding, Ralph Harbert, T.K. McKnight, and Martin Harding.
Rev. Tom Bell will conduct the services.
Funeral arrangements are in charge of McCabe Funera1 Home in St. Augustine.
