A resident of Grimsby for over 50 years passed away on Sunday last, in the person of James W. "Jack" Unwin, in his 76th year. Deceased had been in poor health for some months past, but his many friends throughout the district were greatly grieved and surprised at his demise. Born on the Isle of Wight, he came to Grimsby as a boy and engaged in agriculture. For some years he conducted a flour and feed business in what is now the Russ block and then engaged in fruit growing for himself. He was an active member of St. Andrew's Anglican Church. Surviving are his wife the former Henriette Nelles, daughter of the late H.E. Nelles, one time postmaster of Grimsby; one son Edwin and one daughter Pauline at home; three brothers, Frank of New York, Robert of Toronto, and Edward in England. A private service was held at his home on Tuesday morning, with public service in St. Andrew's church on Tuesday afternoon, Rev. E.A. Brooks officiating, assisted by Rev. J. Allan Ballard, interment taking place in St. Andrew's Churchyard. Casket bearers were: George, Malcolm, Allen and Willison Nelles, J.H. Gibson and Nelles Rutherford.
