The deceased is survived by four sons, Edward of Kitchener, Arthur of Stratford, Nathaniel of Baden and Lincoln of Vancouver; by three daughters Miss Addie Ratz of Wellesley, Mrs. Herb Hoffman of Milverton and Mrs. Anderson Dewar of Wellesley; also by five brothers, Jacob Ratz of Detroit, Adam of Preston, George and Edward E. of Kitchener, and Henry E., of Waterloo, and four sisters, Mrs. Mary Kaufman, Kitchener, Mrs. Tena Schmidt of Lansing, Mrs. Emma Sutter of Stratford and Mrs. John Hill of Buffalo, N.
