Obituary

The Asplund family boarded Titanic as 3rd class to emigrate back to the US. When Titanic hit an iceberg none of the passengers were aware of the danger. Because the family could not speak English, they were in a confusion when the stewards said "All passengers put on your life jackets" When the family managed to get on the boat deck, they allowed the mother and her 2 younger children Lillian (5) and Felix (3) to board a lifeboat. But the father and his 3 older sons were not allowed. Felix along with his father and 2 brothers Clarence (9) Carl Jr (Lillian's twin brother) waved as his mother and 2 younger siblings as the boat was being lowered. The four perished in the sinking.
