He had been ill for some time and sent through a critical operation on the stomach on Saturday forenoon, but owing to his advanced age failed to rally and passed away in the evening.'

He was married to Lydia Brenneman, who predeceased him three years ago. Three sons and one daughter are left to mourn his demise. They are Emerson of Woodstock, Simon near Hickson, Norman on the homestead near Cassel. He also leaves three brothers and one sister, Lois, Joseph and Mrs. Sol.
