Well known in this district, where he had lived for several years, George Fisher, of R.R. 2, Beamsville, was found dead in a field near the Beamsville reservoir last Monday.
The deceased man had been missing from his home since July 26, and his remains were found tangled in a barbed wire fence by Omar Cosby, Beamsville works superintendent. It is believed that in the exertions of attempting to climb over the fence he suffered a heart seizure and collapsed. He had been suffering from heart trouble for some time.
Provincial Constables Frank Conney of St. Catharines and Elmer Bowan, Beamsville, investigated. Dr. C.W. Elmore, the coroner, also viewed the remains, and stated that an inquest was unlikely. It is believed that Mr. Fisher died on the day he was supposed to have disappeared.
The funeral service was held last Tuesday afternoon from the Buck Funeral Home, and interment was made in the Edon Cemetery, Clinton Township.
