In ill health since suffering a broken hip from a fall last autumn, Robert Harvey, for the past quarter of a century a highly respected citizen and fruit grower of Grimsby, passed away at his home, 168 Maple Avenue, on Tuesday evening. Deceased gentleman was born in England, March 16, 1856, and was in his 88th year. He came to Ontario when a child of three years and has been a resident of this province ever since. Practically all his life he was a railroad man with the old G.T.R. and latterly with the C.N.R. as a station agent, from which position he retired when he came to Grimsby to live, his last station agency being in Parkhill. Mr. Harvey was a very devout member and conscientious worker of Trinity United Church and at the time of his demise was the oldest Elder of the church. His wife predeceased him in January 1939. Surviving are three daughters and two sons: Miss Eva at home; Mrs. M.N. Omand, North Bay; Miss Grace, New Liskeard; Howard, New Liskeard; Murray of Ottawa. Funeral services are being held this afternoon from his late residence, 168 Maple Ave. to Queen's Lawn Cemetery for interment, Rev. W.J. Watt, Trinity United, officiating.
