Monterey Peninsula Herald, CA Nov. 30, 1960
Col. Herbert Kenneth Baisley (USAF ret), a Peninsula resident for the past six years, succumbed unexpectedly last evening as he and his wife, Ora Louise, were returning from Aptos. Col. Baisley was stricken at the wheel of his car as it entered the David avenue gate of the 17-Mile Drive. He was taken by A-1 ambulance to the Monterey Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival. Col. Baisley had been under medical care for a coronary condition, but the exact cause of his death will be determined by autopsy. Frightened. After Col. Baisley was pronounced dead, Mrs. Baisley told Monterey police that her husband had been frightened by drivers of two other cars as he drove through New Monterey. She said that he made a right turn onto Foam street when the drivers of the two cars began following him and honking their horns at him. She said the other cars followed him, with horns blowing, all the way through New Monterey and that finally Col. Baisley had to drive around a block to escape them. Mrs. Baisley said she felt that the antics of the other drivers caused him to get overexcited and contributed to the death. She did not ge the license plates of the other cars. She described one car as blue and white, possibly a ’58 Chevrolet and the other as an older model, grey in color. The Baisley home is on the 17-Mile Drive in the Monterey Peninsula Country Club. Los Angeles Native. A native of Los Angeles, where he was born May 25, 1896, he was a veteran of World War I and II, serving in the U.S. Air Force. He retired from active service in 1955. Col. Baisley was a member of the Retired Officers’ Assn. and Mars Radio, a military affiliate radio system. In addition to his wife, he leaves a son, Maj. William Denton Baisley (USAF), stationed at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in North Carolina; a daughter, Mrs. Ora Louise Hersh, attending the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, Mich.; two brothers, Cecil Bailsey of Stockton and William Denton Baisley; and four grandchildren. Funeral services are pending at the MissMor and will be announced later.
