I'd like to track down an obituary for my first cousin, John Michael Volkman, who died in Bayview, Kootenai county, Idaho on 14 October 1973.

Are there local genealogical groups or libraries that have indexes to obituaries in local papers for this time period?

Any suggestions appreciated.

I DID NOT check to see if they DO obituary research. Many library's do NOT.

BAYVIEW MAN ELECTROCUTED

A Bayview man was electrocuted Sunday when he climbed a power pole to make some repairs.

John Michael Volkman, 25, was found dead Tuesday morning in the yard at his Bayview home.

Floyd Stalder, a Kootenai County Sheriff detective, said the investigation revealed the victim apparently had climbed a power pole adjoining a driveway, attempted to reconnect the clamp from the transformer to the primary line and was electrocuted.

The investigation report concluded that the former owner of Rusty Scupper Inn died Sunday evening. The body was discovered about 9 a.m. Tuesday by Steve Spotanski and John Peterson of the First Security Bank, Coeur d’Alene when they came to the house on business.

The funeral arrangements are pending at English Funeral Chapel.
