Daniel Fehr

Driver Dies As Auto Rams Tree


A Salt Lake man was killed Saturday, March 8, 1969 about 12:25 a.m. when his car went out of control and smashed into a tree on 70th South near 33rd East.

Daniel Whitney Fehr, 24, 1623 Millbrook Road (3610 South), was dead on arrival at Cottonwood Hospital, said Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Clark Anderson.

Mr. Fehr was westbound on 70th South when he apparently dozed at the wheel, and the car veered off the road, jumped a drainage ditch and crashed into a large tree, the trooper said.

Mr. Fehr was born January 14, 1945, in Salt Lake City to Mr. and Mrs. Norman L. Whitney Fehr. He attended Rowland Hall-St. Mark’s School and Olympus High school. Mr. Fehr was a Westminster College student and a member of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve.

He is survived by his parents, Salt Lake City, and brother Charles W., Minneapolis.

Funeral services are set tentatively at 2:00 p.m. at 260 E. South Temple.

Danny was one of us, The Millcreek Boys.  We had many good times growing up, playing football in the front yard, golfing at Mountain Dell.  Danny graduated with us because of being held back one year at Olympus, didn't  have enough credits to graduate in 63.  I hate going to the  funerals of my friends.    Happy trails Danny.

Dan was a Millcreek boy allright, along with myself, Stan Adams, Dave Paulsen, Stephen Bumker, Doc Stew Pett, Duncan MacDonald and Dan. Both Dan and Duncan left us way too early. Stephen, Dan and I were in the Marine Corps together. Having completed the active duty portion of our service, we had monthly meetings at the 21st. Rifle Company at Fort Douglas, SLC. Getting up early wasn't one of Dan's strong points and he had missed a few meetings. Stephen and I devised a plan; The Friday night prior to a meeting, Dan agreed to put on his Marine fatigues, boots hat and all, and sleep on the front lawn in a sleeping bag. All we had to do was pull up in front of his house @ 6:00 am, somehow get him in the car, and off we went. He never missed another meeting, but I have sure missed him, "We'll meet again some sunny day".  Howard
