Harvey K. Glidden

   Funeral services for Harvey K. Glidden, 65, a former Beaverton resident, were held Saturday at 2:30 p.m. at Hall Funeral Home. Burial was in Dale Cemetery. Elder James Cunnington, of Lansing, officiated at the rites.

   Mr. Glidden was killed Wednesday when he was struck by a car while fishing off a bridge over the Muskegon River in Roscommon County. Police said Glidden, his son, Harvey Jr., 26, and daughter-in-law, Evelyn, 19, were all struck at the same time. The young couple was taken to Mercy Hospital, Grayling with fractures and back injuries, police reported.

   Mr. Glidden was born in Tobacco Township, Aug. 26, 1896, and was married to Marie Szatkowski in Bad Axe, June 30, 1920. A commercial photographer in Detroit, he retired 10 years ago and had since made his home at Houghton Lake. He was a veteran of World War I and a member of the Houghton Lake post of American Legion.

   Surviving are his widow; one son, Harvey Jr., of Detroit; a daughter, Mrs. Jean Chegar, Detroit; three grandchildren; and a brother, Charles, of Davisburg. Officers said the Gliddens were struck by a car driven by Lawrence E. Bruce, of Lansing, at 8:55 p.m. Bruce was driving south, police reported, and neared the bridge at the same time another auto, driven by Richard Slaught, of Houghton Lake, approached from the north. There wasn't room for both cars on the narrow span without hitting the three pedestrians, officers said.
