Full Text

In the death of Kenneth Nelles Grout, in Hamilton General Hospital, on Saturday, July 11, another link with the Grimsby of the past was severed. A life long resident of Grimsby, the deceased had been a well known and prominent citizen in the industrial and municipal life of the district for over half a century. Mr. Grout died in his 75th year, after an illness of four months. A son of the late, John H. Grout, first Reeve of Grimsby, and a grandson of Rev. George Robert Field Grout, a native of Quebec and Rector of St. Andrew's Church from 1827-1849, deceased was for many years associated with his father in the John H. Grout implement works. In later life he lived retired for many years, devoting much of his time to his gardens at his home, 19 Mountain Street. ... Surviving are his widow, the former Katharine Alexander; three sons, Harold L. and K. Alexander of Hamilton and John Arthur of Toronto; one brother, Harry V. of Port Colborne and two sisters; Mrs. H. Berry of Grimsby and Miss Winnifred Grout of Toronto. The funeral was held on Monday from his late residence at 19 Mountain Street, the Rev. J. Allan Ballard officiating. Pallbearers were his three sons, Harold, Alec, and Arthur, A. Nelles Rutherford, Lloyd Theal, and Harold Johnson. Interment was in St. Andrew's Cemetery.
