Summer-like heat is blamed in man's death

The first wave of summer-like heat has been blamed in the death of a Conrad man Wednesday.

Kingford L. Albright, 65, was found dead around 8 p.m. in his vehicle which was parked in the lot of Tom's Cue and Brew, 803 E. Main St.

According to David Bethel, the Marshall County Medical Examiner, an autopsy conducted at Broadlawns Medical Center in Des Moines Thursday found no evidence of foul play.

"The cause of death was attributed to hyperthermia or excessive body heat due to the victim's exposure to heat Wednesday within his closed parked vehicle," Bethel said.

Bethel said Albright had apparently been living out of his vehicle for the last few days.

Funeral services were held Monday, June 17, 1996, at the Johnston Funeral Home in Conrad, Iowa, for Kingford L. Albright, age 65, of Conrad who passed away Wednesday, June 12, 1996, in Marsalltown, Iowa. The Reverend Charles Fry officiated at the 1:30 p.m. services with burial at the Sheller Cemetery. The Committal Service was provided by the Conrad American Legion Post #681.

Pallbearers at the service were Delbert Kell, Larry Kosnar, Ron Johnston, Ron Rook, Jerry Sanderson, and Dennis Slinker.

A Memorial Fund was to be established.

Born September 1, 1930, Kingford was the son of Bruce W. Albright (deceased) and Bessie I. (Reisinger) Albright Slifer. Kingford graduated from Whitten High School in 1949. He served his country in the Air Force during the Korean Conflict.

On May 26, 1954, he was married to Bonnie L. Thompson in Marshalltown, Iowa. The marriage later ended in divorce.

He was a member of the Conrad American Legion Post #681. Kingford was a farmer by occupation but was retired at the time of his death.

On December 3, 1993, he was married to Joyce A. Hanson in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

He was preceded in death by his parents and one brother.
