LeRoy Gardner

Payette Independent
Thursday, April 22, 1915


LeRoy Gardner, son of Mr. and Mrs. Walter A. Gardner, was instantly killed by a big water wheel, near their home in Boise Monday evening. On his way home from school he stopped with other children to play at a big water wheel. It is supposed that while attempting a ride on the wheel he fell through and was struck by a paddle of the wheel while lying at the bottom of the ditch. He was alone when the accident happened, the other children having gone home.

Both parents use to live here. Mrs. Gardner is the daughter of Frank Gardner of Payette Heights. Mrs. Gardner is a nephew of the Wayne brothers. We understand the body will be brought to Payette for interment.
