- Harry Barnes Fatally Injured in Fall
Harry Barnes, New Hamburg resident, employed by the Kitchener construction firm of Ball Bros., Ltd., was fatally injured in a 30-foot fall while at work on the new head office building of the Economical Mutual Fire Insurance Co. on Duke street west, Kitchener, on Tuesday. According to police, the accident victim fell when one of two planks spanning the eight-foot gap between a hoist and a third-floor window broke beneath his weight. A fellow workman said a permanent stage to the hoist had been removed to permit fitting of trim to the window. Mr. Barnes had been employed with the firm since last summer and for some time was the hoist operator. He had been engaged in removing window weights from the hoist when the mishap occurred. Officials said Wednesday that an inquest would be held. The late Mr. Barnes was born in Williston, England, on June 14, 1901, and came to Canada as a young man. During the war he served with the R.C.A.F., and was discharged in 1945 with the rank of flight sergeant. Surviving are his wife, the former Vera Bingeman; three brothers, Fred, William and Thomas, all of Kitchener, and one sister, Mrs. S. G. Smith of Detroit. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Henry Barnes, predeceased him. The body is resting at the Futher-Omand Funeral Home until today, when a memorial service will be held there at 2: 30 p.m. Rev. M. E. Reuber, pastor of Zion Evangelical United Brethern Church, will officiate and internment will follow in Riverside Cemetery.
