In 2002 Dwight Kellenbarger (Louise's 1st Cousin) told Rick Jackson this amazing story: While in the Army, Dwight was the Barber on a ship at Talagee (sp?) near Guadalcanal in 1944 when he was cutting a young man's hair and was chatting. The man was Eugene Feltner, approximately age 18, of Norwalk, OH, who, just 4 years previous, had been riding his bicycle with a friend and noticed the Downeys basement light on. He had "known" that the Downey's visited Florida in the winters and thought that they were gone. He told the friend's mother at the end of the street and she told him to see if he could get in the basement to turn off the light. Gene went to do so and upon looking in the basement window saw Walter Downey deceased.1 2 3 4
