Full Text

The citizens of Grimsby and vicinity were greatly shocked on Sunday last to learn of the death at his home in Leamington, Ont., of Mr. Pelham Falconbridge. The deceased gentleman and family had resided in Grimsby for about 15 years, up to two years ago, when he accepted a position of manager of the Erie Co-Operative Fruit Company, Leamington, Ont. The death of the late Pelham Falconbridge will be regretted very much, not only by the business men and prominent citizens of Grimsby, but by business men generally throughout the Province, as he had business connections and personal acquaintances all over the Province, being a large shipper when he was a member of the firm of Randall & Falconbridge, Grimsby, as well as being very prominent in the Masonic Order. While in Grimsby he took an active part in municipal, provincial and Dominion politics and his family was active in social and church circles in the village. About two weeks ago the deceased gentleman took sick while out riding in an auto and returning to his home was confined to his room up to the time of his death. The trouble was a weak heart. The funeral will take place this afternoon from the home of his brother, Maple Avenue, Grimsby, to Queen's Lawn Cemetery, and will be conducted by the Masonic Order, of which he was a very prominent member, being secretary for a great many years of the Royal Arch Masons. He is survived by his wife, two sons, Lennox, Manager of the Montreal Crockery Company, Montreal, and Travers, who will succeed his father as manager of a new fruit company formed last year, known as the Essex Growers' Fruit Company, and two daughters, Mrs. W.H. Groce of Grimsby and Miss Dorothy at home.
