    • George Kimpel

      PRESTON, Sept. 25\emdash George Kimpel, lifelong district resident and resident of Preston for the past 44 years, died at his home, 119 Tiffany St., yesterday afternoon at the age of 89 years. Ailing for some time he had been seriously ill since Friday. Born in Speedsville, near Preston, Mr. Kimpel resided there until the time of his marriage to the late Elizabeth Kalb in 1879, when he moved to Doon and employed in the brickyard there for some years. Later he moved to the township line between North and South Waterloo where he farmed for a number of years. Coming to Preston in 1903, he resided here since that time. For 30 years he was employed in the crating department at Clare Bros., after which he worked with the Canadian National Railway for two years. In 1924 he assumed duties as caretaker of the R.C. cemetery, continuing in this capacity until 1931, when he retired. Highly interested in the Preston Horticultural Society, of which he was an enthusiastic member, Mr. Kimpel campaigned in the interest of the society. He was a charter member of the 1.0.0.F., in Doon and was a former member of the C.O.F., Preston, for some years. Surviving are three daughters, Mrs. Louis Southern, Birmingham, Mich., Mrs. Earl Stuart, Preston, Mrs. John Affeldt, of Penetanguishene, Ont.; five sons, George and Thomas of Galt, William, Albert and Ernest of Preston. Twenty grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren also survive. His wife predeceased him in 1933, and a sister, Mrs. Oscar Mattes, also died in 1933. The remains will rest at the home of his son and daughter-in-iaw, Mr. and Mrs. William Kimpel, 654 North St., Preston, until Friday at 1 p.m. Service will be held at St. Peter's Lutheran Church at 2: 30 Friday. Interment will be in the Preston cemetery.
