    • Andrew Robson Passes

      Death Came Suddenly to Former Ayr Resident at Alsask, Sask. His many Ayr friends were deeply shocked on Thursday to of the sudden passing at Alsask, Sask., of Andrew Thomas Robson, aged 60 years, as a result of a heart attack.

      He was born in Ayr, being a son of the late James Robson and Christena Gemmell, and resided here until about 20 years ago when he left for Toronto.

      As a young man, "Crook," as he was familiarly known, was quite popular with many friends and acquaintances in the village.

      It might here be noted that during the past eight months, three members of the Robson family have passed away, namely: Mrs. John Easton, South Dumfries, in January; John Robson, Alsask in May, and now Andrew.

      He left for Alsask early in July in connection with the settling up of the estate of his brother, the late John Robson.

      Surviving are his wife, whose maiden name was Mayme Morton a native of Ayr, and a sister, Mrs. William S. Marshall of Ayr. A brother, Morton Robson, passed away three years ago, and another brother, Bert, died at Alsask, Sask., some 15 years ago.

      The Funeral.

      The funeral took place to the Ayr Cemetery on Tuesday upon the arrival of the C.P.R. morning train from Toronto. Rev. R. A. Steed had charge of the service at the grave side and the pallbearers were: Murdo McRae, Alex McRae, David Gemell, J. C. Swan, F. R. McGrogan and Geo. H. Lawrence. There was a large attendance, including a number of relatives and friends from Toronto, Galt and Paris.
