In the death of Frederick W. Andrews, tax collector of the municipality for the past 12 years, Grimsby has lost another of its well-known citizens who has been a resident here for many years. He passed away at his home, 6 Adelaide Street, on Monday morning, suffering a seizure on Saturday from which he failed to rally. A resident of Grimsby for 40 years, the late Mr. Andrews was active in the various organizations with which he was identified. He was born in Kent, England, being in his 71st year.
The late Mr. Andrews was a member of St. John's Presbyterian Church and of the church session and was secretary-treasurer of the choir. He was also a member of Grimsby Lodge, No. 369, I.O.O.F., with which he was actively associated, being a Past Noble Grand, Financial Secretary and Chaplain of that organization.
A lover of flowers, Mr. Andrews spent much time in his garden, being much interested in horticulture.
His wife predeceased him on April 27, 1934. Surviving are one son and a sister in England. The funeral was held on Wednesday afternoon from his late home, it being conducted by Rev. I.B. Kaine. A large number was in attendance. Interment was made in St. Andrew's Churchyard. Pallbearers were Messrs. Henry Hillier, Wm. Sangster, Wm. Durham, Robert Hughes, A. Hermiston, and Little.
