Quoting Death Notice:
Kenneth Bilderback, Prominent Conway Farmer, Is Victim.
CONWAY, Mo, July 21--Kenneth Bilderback, 25, prominent young Conway farmer, was Instantly killed about 6:30 o'clock Monday morning when lightning struck a silo on his farm. No bruises were found on his body and it Is believed the shock killed him. His father, Charles Bilderback, was inside the barn and was knocked down by the shock. He could not remember what happened, but said when he recovered consciousnes he was outside the barn. The silo and barn are equipped with electric lights from a Delco system and it is thought that the electricity followed the wires of the system from the silo through the barn. The electrical milkers were going and one of the cows was killed by the shock. Young Bilderback was about 15 OR 30 feet from the barn when struck.
