Joe Giles ran the cedar mill until April 4, 1977. On April 4, 1977, Joe and his wife, Karen boarded a DC9 at Huntsville on Southern flight 242 for a trip to Atlanta. They never made it. The plane crashed in a thunderstorm at New Hope, Georgia killing 72 people including Joe and Karen. Joe and Karen had small children but they were not on the flight. Joe's sister assumed the business but soon sold out. Thus the Giles family in Giles and Kendal was in name only.
