He is survived by hs father and mother, five sisters and one brother. The sisters are Mrs. Fred Shaffer, Mrs. David Appleby and Emma at home; Mrs. Smeaton, Mrs. Bishop, of the west, all being present except the brother, Fred who is also in the west. The service was conducted at the house and grave by our pastor, Rev. Mr. Dimmock. The hymns sung were "Safe in the Arms of Jesus", "Some time We'll Underatand" and We'll Never Say Good Bye in Heaven". The remains were laid to rest in the Berry's Mills cemetery. Much sympathy is felt by the bereaved family
