Resident Killed In Crash Which Took 4 Lives

Lloyd E. Higgins Victim of Brown County Collision

The toll of the bloody weekend on Wisconsin highways included Lloyd E. Higgins, 44, 608 S. Ash Ave., who died in a Brown County accident Saturday afternoon which snuffed out the lives of all four persons involved. They died in a head-on crash of two autos at the intersection of Highways 29 and 32, and a town road, 7 miles west of Green Bay, at 4:14 p. m. Higgins was alone in his car. Victims in the other vehicle were all members of a rural Oneida family - Eastman Skenadore, 53; his wife, Lucille, 49, and a son, Gordon, 7. Authorities said all four died instantly. They theorized the Skenadore car might have been making a left turn onto the town road when the crash occurred, since the family home was in that direction. Skenadore's car was driven backward about 200 feet from the point of impact. There is a small rise at the point of the crash which the Marshfield man's vehicle climbed before reaching the intersection. The Skenadore had two other children, whom authorities reported had been left in the care of an aunt for the day. Funeral services for Lloyd E. Higgins will be held at the Hansen Funeral Home here at 10 a. m. Tuesday, with the Rev. Douglas P. Oyan, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, officiating. Interment will be made in the Walnut Hill cemetery in Baraboo. Higgins was born Oct. 18, 1918, in Baraboo and graduated from the Baraboo High School in 1938. He entered the armed forces in 1940, serving about four years, after which he was employed at Badger Ordinance Works. He later moved to Wisconsin Rapids, where he worked for five years. Since coming to Marshfield, he had been employed by the Mutual of Omaha Insurance Company as a claims adjuster. Higgins was a member of the United Commercial Travelers. Survivors include his parents, Mr. and Mrs. B. J. Higgins of Marshfield. A sister died in infancy. The Past Presidents Parley of the American Legion Auxiliary will meet at the funeral home this evening at 7:30 o'clock, to pay their respects.
