Full Text

Grimsby and district residents were greatly shocked on Monday to learn of the double death at their home in Toronto, on Sunday and Monday of Kenneth E. Whyte and his wife Alma Kathaleen Whyte. Mrs. Whyte had been in ill health for some considerable time but her demise was not expected by her large number of friends and relatives. She passed away at the family residence on Sunday evening. Mr. Whyte, who has been in poor health for a long period of time was greatly shocked by the death of his wife and,suffering a seizure on Monday afternoon, passed away. Mrs. Whyte was the only daughter of C.W.F. Carpenter and the late Mrs. Carpenter and was born and educated in this district. Besides her father she leaves one brother, Lloyd of Baltimore, Md. One small son mourns the loss of a father and mother. Kenneth Whyte was a veteran of the Royal Air Force in the last war. In charge of aircraft at London for a time, he later went to France and while serving there was terribly burned when his plane took fire in the air. His left leg, badly burned but apparently healing after a year in hospital, was amputated some time after his return to Canada. Taking up civil aviation after his discharge from active service, he was in charge of Hamilton airport for some time....He was a son of George C. and the late Mrs. Whyte, for many years residents of Grimsby. Surviving are three brothers, Paul of Toronto, Barclay of British Columbia and Hugh K. of Grimsby. The two remains were brought to Grimsby on Wednesday morning and funeral services were held at St. Andrew's Anglican Church.
