BLYTHE, BILLY GENE - Funeral services were held this morning (Tuesday) for a Tipp area man killed instantly Friday evening in an auto accident in Dayton.  Billy Gene Blythe, 6930 East U. S. 40, Tipp City, slammed his car into a power line pole in the 900 block of Leo street just before 7 p.m. on July 7. Investigators said it appeared the car, heading east on Leo street, careened suddenly out of control and into the pole, apparently at a high rate of speed.  Blythe was traveling alone, and no witnesses to the crash could be found.  He has been employed as a finish roller at the Ziehler Road materials company. Survivors include his mother, Mrs. Nettie E. Blythe of Brandt; two sons, Philip and Johnny, both of Dayton; four daughters, Pamela, Nancy, Janey and Melissa, all of Dayton; two sisters, Mrs. Betty Barnett Huff and Mrs. Wilma Farris, both of Dayton; 5 brothers, Jack, Ronald, Michael, David and Daniel Blythe, all of Dayton.  Services were conducted by the Reverend Percy W. Herman at the Guy J. Magetti funeral home, 1508 Valley Street, Dayton, with interment in Willowview Cemetery.
