Harry Sissel, 64, brother of Raymond Sissel and Mrs. Guy Maurer of Tipton, was killed about 9:20 a.m. Aug. 4 at a Milwaukee railroad crossing in Hale. Sissel, who lived in Central City, was moving to Hale when his pick-up truck was struck by the "City of Denver", a Union Pacific passenger train.
According to Highway Patrolman Del Antle of Anamosa, 3 vehicles were in a line at the crossing, with Sissel the third vehicle. He apparently did not see or hear the train and drove onto the tracks where his truck was cut in half by the train.
Sissel's body was found on the ground near the tracks. The box, frame and rear wheels of the truck were on one side of the tracks and the cab, motor and front wheels on the other.
Mr. Sissel was a retired farmer. He never married.
He is survived by 2 brothers, Martin, Buckner, Mo., and Raymond, Tipton and 3 sisters, Mrs. Lester Martens, Golden, Colo.; Mrs. N. O. French, Ruthven and Mrs. Guy Maurer, Tipton.
Sheets and Son Funeral home are in charge of arrangements.
