The residents of the Grimsby District and more, particularly the younger element, will be greatly shocked to hear of the death of Ontario Ralph Henry, of Beamsville, in that Village on the morning of Thursday, May 22, 1919, after a long and trying illness,in his 28th year. The deceased young man was a son of O.E. and Mrs. Henry of Beamsville, and was well and favorably known in this district and well as in his home town. Patient in long-suffering, he fought a dread disease with ever-renewed cheerfulness and hope and up to a short time before he died was feeling renewed confidence in soon getting outside again. Deceased was born in Beamsville and took an active interest in everything pertaining to the life of the community. To within a few months of his last illness he had employed himself in office routine. The funeral of the late young man took place on Sunday, May 25, 1919; after a service at the house, interment taking place in Mount Osborne cemetery, Beamsville; a large gathering of friends and acquaintances being present to pay their last respects to the memory of their departed friend. Left to mourn the cutting off of the young man at such an early age are his parents, two sisters and two brothers, one of the latter being on his way home from overseas after four years service with the Canadian Forces.
