Death came suddenly and unexpectedly to one of Grimsby's finest citizens, and one of the district's largest and most prominent fruit growers on Thursday afternoon last, when Thomas Rienza Hunter answered the call of His Maker... He was known as a good grower who produced the finest of Grimsby fruits working an eight acre farm at the home place on Maple Avenue and 100 acres on the Hunter Sideroad in North Grimsby west. He was in his 64th year, having been born in Grimsby township just a year before it was split into North and South Grimsby. He was born in the south portion, a son of the late Arthur and Mrs. Hunter. He was a member of Trinity United Church and of Union Lodge No. 7,A.F. & A.M. He served the Town of Grimsby as a Water Commissioner for 13 years from 1924 to 1937. He was a member of Hamilton Kiwanis Club. He is survived by his wife the former Mabel Purdue of Toronto, two nephews and one niece. Funeral services were held from his late home, Maple Avenue, on Sunday afternoon...Interment was in Queen's Lawn Cemetery. Casket bearers were Philip Tregunno, James Walker, Victor Catton, Merton Zimmerman, Walter McRae and P.E Wilkins.
