    • Died in Hospital After Near Drowning When Car Goes Into Shallow Water

      Milton Lies, 52, of Kitchener, died unexpectedly in K-W Hospital on Sunday evening after being saved from drowning earlier in the afternoon. He was driving into Kitchener from the south-west when his car struck the Mill St. bridge near the city limits and plummeted into the creek. Mr. Leis was pinned underneath in about 1 feet of water. Golfers from the Rockway golf course saw the accident and rushed to his assistance. They pulled him from his perilous position and he seemed to be only slightly injured. The deceased was a former resident of New Hamburg, and was employed in the Hahn Brass Co. factory. He was a son-in-law of Mrs. Catharine Litwiller of this town. Surviving are his wife, three sons, Milton, Wallace and Robert, all of Kitchener; four daughters, Mrs. Carl (Mildred) Kaminska of Centreville; Mrs. William (Katharine) Musclow of Galt; Mrs. Munro (Marie) Kerr and Mrs. Matthew (Laura) Riem, both of Kitchener; a sister, Mrs. Solomon Gerber, Wellesley, and nine grandchildren. A son, Wilfred, was killed in action in France in the Second World War. A sister, Nancy, and a brother, Mose, also predeceased him. A private funeral service was held Wednesday afternoon at the Ratz-Bechtel Funeral Home with Rev. Dr. H. A. Kellerman, pastor of Calvary Memorial Church, officiating. Burial was in Woodland Cemetery, Kitchener.1a
