CORNELL, HENSON, LONDON, PACE, PEARSON, SANDERS, TREAT, WOOD, WRIGHT posted by Gary D Treat on Thursday, May 13, 1965

Mountain Echo, Yellville, AR Thursday, 13 May 1965, pg 1 & 10 Lightning Kills Well Known White River Guide Floyd "Big" TREAT, lifelong resident of this area was instantly killed Sunday morning when struck by lightning while acting as guide for a fishing party which included seven boats and some 20 people. A group of Ebco Mfg. Co. personnel from Columbus, OH had spent Saturday floating from Cotter to the mouth of the Buffalo River, then returned to Bull Shoals for the night and resumed the float trip Sunday morning. It was raining off and on that morning and the guides left it up to the visitors to decide whether they continued fishing or went in, Rack PACE, one of the guides, said. The fishing was good and everyone wanted to continue but by about 11 o'clock everyone had plenty of fish and the group planned to quit and go in in another few minutes. They were about 2 miles above Shipps Ferry at the time. TREAT was in a boat with two of the fishermen and remarked to them he was glad he wasn't using a steel rod, as he stood up in the rear of the boat to cast. Then the bolt struct him. Rack PACE said he was looking down into his boat at the time but saw the flash and looked up just in time to see TREAT's hat in the air some six feet or so, then he saw TREAT's body in the water but supposed he had fallen in, and started his boat over to him. When they got to Big it was obvious what had happened and that he was dead. There were two holes in each side of the boat just above the water line and two holes burned in Big's hat. His shoes were split and his watch chain was fused together although the watch was still running. One of his companions was partially paralyzed on one side for a time. The fishing party made its way to Shipps Ferry as quickly as possible but the phone was out of order and they borrowed a car to take the two men to the Baxter County Hospital. TREAT was pronounced dead on arrival but the second man was kept a few hours and released that afternoon. PACE said it was the first time he ever knew of lightning striking on or along a river, although he makes it a point not to be on a lake during a storm. George Floyd TREAT was born June 11, 1907 in Boone County, the son of C. C. TREAT and Pearl Elizabeth (LONDON) TREAT. He was married to Zetta HENSON Dec. 6, 1928 at Flippin. The TREATs have lived in Bull Shoals for about one year but have lived in the Flippin-Bull Shoals vicinity for the past 19 years. He had been a guide for fishing parties for the past 24 years. Survivors are his wife of the home in Bull Shoals, a daughter, Mrs. Katheryn SANDERS, Flippin; four sons, Kern of Little Rock, and Keith, Kenton and Kenneth of Flippin; three brothers, Waldo, Jesse and Jim TREAT, all of Mountain Home; a sister, Mrs. Norma WRIGHT of Springfield, MO; and seven grandchildren. Funeral services were held at 2 p.m. Wednesday in the Christian Church at Flippin with the pastor, Rev. Eldon KING, and Rev. W. Roy MOYERS of Cotter officiating. Burial was in the Flippin cemetery. Pallbearers were Jimmy SANDERS, Truman CORNELL, Jim WOOD, A. K. PEARSON, Rack PACE and Bill Joe PACE.
