Another well known figure in the city and surrounding districts was removed Friday morning by the passing of Mr. Ralph Alfred Steeves at his home, 229 St. George Street, following a short illness.
Mr. Steeves, who was a son of the late Myles Steeves, of Dover, NB, was born in Dover September 9th seventy-six years ago and lived at that place until he moved to Moncton about twenty years ago. He was a warm supporter of the Free Baptist Church until its union with the regular Baptist and his home at Dover was always the home of the Baptist minister. He was a life long Liberal in politics and by energy and thrift was successful financially. In his business relations he was straightforward and honorable and had won a large number of close friends.
Mr. Steeves was twice married and leaves to mourn his demise his widow, formerly Mrs. John Beattie, a daughter, Miss Mayme Steeves, at home, two sons, Waldo, of the CNR of this city, and Gordon of Montreal, and a step daughter, Miss Flossie Beattie at home.
Deceased was widely known and will be greatly missed by all who knew him and especially by those of his own generation.
Funeral arrangements will be announced later.
