Gap, Pa. Youth Killed In Sawmill Accident
Lancaster, Pa. — A sawmill accident near Gap, Pa. on Oct. 24 resulted in instant death for Dale S. Lapp, 19, of rural Paradise, son of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel S. Lapp.
The young man had just returned to the sawmill with a large tractor trailer load of logs. Upon releasing the chains for unloading the load, four logs fell on him, killing him instantly.
The accident occurred on the premises of the Lapp Lumber Co. and within sight of his parental home. He had been in the employ of his father and brothers since graduation from high school.
Born at Paradise, Pa., the youth was a member of the Bart Mennonite Church. Funeral services were held Oct. 26 at the Weavertown Amish Mennonite Church in charge of Christian Beiler, John Stoltzfus, Erie Renno and Shem Peachey.
In addition to his parents, Samuel S. and Susan Glick Lapp, surviving are these brothers and sisters: Melvin G. Lapp, Atglen; Anna Mary, wife of Kenneth Benner, Chester, Vt.; Jacob R. Lapp, Kinzer; David G. Lapp, Paradise; Edna Fern, wife of Raymond Lapp, Gordonville; Barbara Ann, wife of Titus Kauffman, Christianna [sic Christiana]; and Rhoda A. Lapp, at home.
