Full Text

The Grim Reaper removed from out midst on Friday night one of Grimsby's best known and highly respected citizens in the person of Mr. Charles Davis, Elm St. The late Mr. Davis came to Grimsby from England over 30 years ago and has lived here ever since. Early in the spring of this year he went to England on a trip for his health, but left for home shortly after war was declared in August. For a short time after arriving home, he was in excellent health and spirits and then he began to fail until he finally had to take to his bed, passing quietly away on Friday evening. He was a hard-working, quiet, unassuming man, of a very generous nature and he will be greatly missed by the poor of Grimsby. He is survived by a widow and two children, Miss Eva and Mr. Charles, both at home. The funeral took place on Sunday to St. Andrew's Church and was very largely attended. The interment was in St. Andrew's burying ground, Rev. J. Allan Ballard officiating.
