    • ROY G. ZILLIAX

      A hardware merchant in Gravenhurst for many years, Roy G. Zilliax, passed away in Gravenhurst on Sunday, June 17th, in his 60th year.

      The late Roy G. Zilliax was well known in Elmira, having been born and raised here, a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Henry Zilliax. Some 45 years ago he left Elmira and for a short time resided in Collingwood but later went to Gravenhurst and operated a hardware store for many years. He was keenly interested in sports of all kinds but particularly hockey and bowling.

      Those left to mourn their loss are the widow, formerly Edith Johns, one son overseas, William and one daughter (Betty) Mrs. MacDonald of Gravenhurst. Two brothers, John of Elmira and Charles of Durham, and one sister, Mrs. Emma Giller, Kitchener, survive. The late Mr. Zilliax was buried at Gravenhurst.
