Lilee, thanks for the info.
Not sure why you put 3 weeks interval
between onset & death as Larry Klele
died within 4 hours of his injury.
Logan Blvd. was known as a place for
kids to do their car racing as was
three mile curve.
Maybe someone can find the article
in an old Logan Banner from 1963.

is that George Klele who immigrated
in 1940 from Damascus Syria died
from a heart attack on March 11,1963.
