 Oscar Dewey Driggers
(April 24, 1899-February 13, 1939)

WILLIAMS, Feb. 16---Funeral services for Oscar Driggers, 48 year old, chief mechanic and garage foreman here for the Saginaw and Manistee Lumber Company, who died in Kingman Monday morning following a heart attack, will ge held here at 2 p.m. Sunday followed by burial in the local cemetery.  Driggers, a resident here several years, had gone to Kingman after being advised of the death of a relative in that district.  He was a native of Bailey, Tex., and at the time of his death was vice-grand of the local Odd Fellows lodge. Surviving are his wife and three young children.

The funeral services of Oscar D. Driggers, whose death was reported in the Chloride news of this issue, will be held in Williams at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, February 17, at the Methodist Church, and the Odd Fellows will have charge of the services at the grave.

Lindenan, Kenneth Massey and Misses Wanda, Lilah, and Gordie Waters drove to Williams on Friday where they attended the funeral of Oscar Driggers who died in Chloride on Monday morning from a heart attack. Driggers was a very close friend of H. C. Lindeman's and the Waters family. He was mechanic for Harry Waters for about five years at McGaffey, New Mexico. He came to Oatman eight years ago this coming June and in November, 1931, married Leona Shull of Chloride, moving to the Boriana mine and from there they moved to Williams where they resided to the time of his death.  He leaves to mourn his death his wife Leona Driggers, one son LeRoy, two daughters, Marguerite and Jean, all of Williams, and two daughters Opal and Bonnie by a former marriage, four brothers and his mother all residing in Texas. His daughter Opal, and three of his brothers drove to Williams to attend the funeral.

Oscar Driggers, employed as master mechanic at the Saginaw Lumber Company, died of a heart attack in Chloride early Monday morning while visiting with his wife's relatives the C. A. Shull family. Mr. and Mrs. Driggers (nee Leona Shull) and three children came to Movave County Saturday to attend the funeral in Oatman of Bill Hoffman, a relative. After the funeral Mr. and Mrs. Driggers returned to Chloride for a visit with the Shull family and Sunday evening Driggers was stricken with a heart attack. Dr. M. K. Ruch was summoned but another attack was fatal, the stricken man dying at 4:20 a.m. Monday. Driggers was well known in Mohave County and was 38 years of age. He leaves his widow and three children, LeRoy 7, Margaret Louise 4, and Jean Annette
2. Final arrangements for the funeral have not been made but Driggers was a
member of the Williams Elks Lodge.

Stricken with a heart attack while himself on a mission of respect to a deceased relative, Oscar Driggers passed away at Kingman at five minutes past four o'clock Monday morning, following an overnight illness.  Mr. Driggers, accompanied by his wife and three children, LeRoy, Margaret and Jean, were called to Chloride Friday by the death of Mrs. Driggers' sister's husband. The family attended the funeral Sunday afternoon and a few hours later, Mr. Driggers was stricken.  Mrs. Driggers came to Williams on Monday afternoon to make arrangements for the funeral and then returned to Kingman Tuesday afternoon to attend brief funeral service there and then bring the body to Williams.  Definite arrangements for the funeral are pending the arrival of a number of Mr. Driggers' relatives but tentative plans are for the services to be at the Community Church at two o'clock Sunday afternoon with the Williams I.O.O.F. Lodge, of which the deceased is a member, taking charge at the grave.  Mr. Driggers came to this section about three years ago and entered the employ of the Saginaw and Manistee Lumber Company as mechanic at the company's Apex camp. When the camp closed Mr. Driggers was brought in to the main plant as garage foreman, a position which he was occupying at the time of his death.
