The residents, and particularly the older residents of the Grimsby district will regret to learn of the death of Mr. Edward Dycer, a former well known and highly respected resident of this section, which occurred in the Hamilton Sanatorium on Sunday morning, May 25, 1919, as a result of the after effects of gas poisoning received on active service on the Western Front. The late Mr. Dycer had lived in Beamsville and Grimsby for many years, in his youth and in the early days of the Yukon gold rush had gone into that country where he had been practically ever since, or up until the time of the breaking of the war clouds in 1914. Shortly after the outbreak of hostilities, the deceased gentleman, although well over 50 years of age, felt the strong urge to carry arms in defence of his country - and he returned to the home of his youth, Beamsville - and from there enlisted in the 120th Hamilton Battalion, for overseas; and he proceeded to the Old Land with that unit... He has been in the Hamilton Sanatorium for the past year...Three sisters and one brother are left to survive the late Mr. Dycer,these being Mrs. Fairbrother, Grimsby, Mrs. William Kew, and Mrs. Louise Kerr, Beamsville and Charles Dycer of Buffalo, N.Y. The funeral of the deceased gentleman took place on Tuesday afternoon May 27, 1919, from the residence of Mrs. Fairbrother, Grimsby, where service was held; thence to Beamsville where interment took place in Mount Osborne Cemetery. The service was conducted by the Rev. J. Allan Ballard, rector of St. Andrew's Church, Grimsby, and the pallbearers were all members of the immediate family.
