Full Text

Suffering a sudden heart attack from which he failed to rally, Oswin Allen Hummel passed away at the home of his son in Fort Erie on Monday evening. Oswin Hummel, a twin brother of Irvine Hummel of Grimsby, was born in Campden 62 years ago and came to Grimsby with his parents as a child. He attended Grimsby public school and in 1893, at the age of 12 years, commenced his apprenticeship in the old office of The Independent, thus he had completed 50 years at the printing trade. He married Miss Lettie Lester, cousin of Mrs. Archie Aiton, and in 1908 severed his connection with this paper, and moved to California, where he went to work for the Modesta Times, with which paper he was foreman of the composing room, when after the war he returned to Canada to live. He was connected for some years with The Hamilton Spectator and large job printing plants in Hamilton and 14 years ago joined the mechanical staff of the Fort Erie Times-Review. Surviving are his widow and brother Irvine, and three sons and one daughter: Malcolm of Fort Erie, Ellis of Niagara Falls, James E. of Latchford and Miss Mable of Hamilton. Funeral services are being held this afternoon and interment will be at Fort Erie.
