Full Text

A well known and highly respected resident of Louth Township, in the person of Charles Tennant, beloved husband of Lavina Wright Tennant, passed away last Wednesday at the family residence, following an illness of some duration. Born in Leeds county, he later moved to Parry Sound, and in 1914 came to this community where he had since resided. For a number of years he had successfully carried on the occupation of farming and many friends both in business and private life will learn with sincere regret of his passing. In religion, he was an adherent of First United Church. He was also a member of the Fairview Men's Club and for several years acted in the capacity of caretaker of Fairview school. He was keenly interested in hunting and fishing and many of his leisure hours were spent in that manner. In 1939, Mr. and Mrs. Tennant celebrated their golden wedding anniversary. He is survived by his sorrowing widow, three daughters, Mrs. Edward Alves of Parry Sound, Mrs. Hugh Swayze of St. Catharines, Mrs. Fred McKenzie of Louth Township, and two sons, George Tennant of Grimsby, and Albert Tennant of Clarkson. A daughter, Elsie, predeceased him in 1924. Sixteen grandchildren and four great grandchildren also survive.
