Letters to the Editor: Death of Mr. Ruttan. Editor of the Independent, Dear Sir, On May 28th at 6 o'clock a.m. Grimsby East was called upon to part with one of its best and most highly respected citizens in the person of Mr. Charles N. Ruttan, who was born at Adolphustown on May 5th, 1862. His parents were Elisha Ruttan and Susanna Outwater of good old U.E.L. stock who held from the Crown the title to the "Old Homestead" where as a boy and youth Charles spent the early years of his life. Here too under the influence of a Christian home he sought and found Christ as a personal Saviour and became an earnest faithful Christian. On February 21st, 1911, he married Ethel Mabel Johnson, second daughter of the late H.M. Johnson of Hallowel Township, and soon after settled at Grimsby East and became one of our successful and earnest fruit growers... [details of his illness] on Friday morning, May 28th, he passed peacefully away to the home beyond. On Sunday evening, May 30th, a service was held in the home, conducted by his pastor, Rev. J.A. McLachlan of Grimsby, assisted by Rev. T. Ratcliffe of the Baptist Church, Grimsby, and early on Monday morning the remains were taken to Picton for interment. A service was held at the home of his brothers, Benson and John Ruttan, conducted by Rev. A. Brown, D.D. of Picton, and the burial took place in Glenwood cemetery. He leaves to mourn his loss, in addition to the two brothers mentioned above, his wife and little son Harold...[writer pays his respects to the deceased] Yours truly, A. Greenwood
