Full Text

William Alfred Wasnidge, for many years a resident of Grimsby, died at his home on Lake Street, on Sunday, Nov. 1, 1925, in his 76th year. He had been in rather poor health for some time, but the shock of the sudden death of his son, Fred, a week previous, hastened the end. Mr. Wasnidge was born in McGillivray township, County of Middlesex, on Dec. 25, 1849, the only son of Alfred Wasnidge and Eliza Bond. While still a child the family moved to Toronto, and later, about 1857, when his father died they came to Grimsby and remained a few years, then moving to the township of Clinton. In 1873 he married Sarah Arminia Shepherd and about 20 years later came again to Grimsby, where he has resided since. On May 23, 1923, they celebrated their golden wedding. Mr. Wasnidge was a Methodist in religion and a Conservative in politics. Surviving are his wife and one son, Harry in the pharmacy business in Niagara Falls, N.Y. The funeral takes place this afternoon from his late home to Queens Lawn Cemetery.
