  • Notes 
    • Ivan R. Hall Passes

      One of Ayr's most prominent citizens, Ivan R. Hall, passed away this (Wednesday) morning n K-W Hospital where he had been seriously ill for the past week. He was in his 69th year. A leading figure in the community's church and social life, Mr. Hall counted a legion of friends who admired and respected his quiet and kindly temperament. He was a product of the old school of gentlemen whose adherence to immaculate customs of greeting and conversation were a pleasant departure in today's fast-moving world. He was born on the farm in Blenheim Township now owned by Merle Coleman. His parents, the late Andrew Y. Hall and Kitty Belle Robson were descendants of pioneer families in the district. He was eminently successful as a farmer at Perry's Corners for many years, and utilized his keen business acumen as a livestock drover. He moved with his family to Ayr in 1942 where he continued in the livestock market. One of the active members of Knox United Church here, Mr. Hall had served as an elder and on several other of the church boards. He was a keen sportsman, who excelled at curling and lawn bowling. He also took an intense interest in hockey and softball. When the Ayr Community Centre was built about a decade ago Mr. Hall was appointed to the campaign committee. Not only did he work long and assiduously in this capacity but donated generously financially and with volunteer labor for the project. He was a welcome addition to community social events where his presence always contributed to the cheerfulness of the atmosphere. Among his pleasant relaxations was bridge, which he played with considerable ability. Surviving are his wife, the former Ellen Riddell; a son Roy of Perry's Corners; daughters Mrs. G. D. Harmer (Marjorie) of Plattsville and Mrs. Roland Brighton (Isobel) of Perry's Corners, and a sister Mrs. A. e. chamberlain (Helen) of Montreal. Five grandchildren also survive. Resting at Coutts Funeral Home, 96 St. Andrews St., Galt. Funeral arrangements are being completed.
