Death came suddenly, on Wednesday morning of last week, to a former well known resident of Grimsby, in the person of Frederick W. Pottenger. Deceased was born in Owen Sound and for the greater part of his life was connected with the old Bank of Hamilton. He was for many years manager of the Grimsby branch of the bank and upon its absorption by the Canadian Bank of Commerce, was transferred to Hamilton. He was manager of a branch in the west end of Hamilton that the famous bank robber "Red" Ryan attempted to hold up but was drive off by the gunfire of Mr. Pottenger. Through his genial disposition and active life he gained a host of friends and was very active in Masonic Circles, holding membership in the Barton Lodge, A.F. & A.M., 32 degrees; was a member of the Scottish Rite and belonged to the Murton Lodge of Perfection; the Hamilton Sovereign Chapter, Rose Croix, and the Moore Sovereign Consistory. He was a past master of Union Lodge No. 7, A.F. & A.M., Grimsby. He was also a member and former warden of the Church of the Ascension. He leaves to survive him his wife, Georgina Martin Pottenger; one daughter, Mrs. Donald J. Huxley, Hamilton, and one brother, Arthur B. Pottenger, in Elsinore, Cal.
