Reeve of Louth Township - Well and popularly known throughout the whole district - Call came very suddenly. Edward W. Fry, Reeve of the Township of Louth, passed away very suddenly Wednesday noon at his home at Vineland, death resulting from heart failure. The late Mr. Fry had been suffering from heart trouble for the past 15 years and of late had been unable to do much more than walk around. Wednesday morning he arose as usual, ate breakfast and shaved, later going out on the verandah for a talk with his son. Returning to the house he had just seated himself in a chair when he succumbed. The late Edward W. Fry was born in Louth 58 years ago, the son of Abraham Fry who still survives. He resided in Louth with the exception of about two years, during which time he conducted the Russell House Livery Stable in St. Catharines. He was well known in Louth Township and was highly regarded as an upright and [illegible] citizen, which was borne out by his repeated return as a member of the Council and as Reeve of the municipality. He served about 15 years in the Council and about 8 years as Reeve, during which terms he also sat in the County Council. The flags on the county buildings were at half mast because of his death. In the deliberations of the County Council his advice was held in high regard. He said little unless the occasion demanded it, but that little bore weight. He was a Liberal in politics. He is survived by his wife and one son, Gordon, at home, his father, two brothers, Wilfrid of St. Catharines, and David, of Dunnville. The funeral was held on Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the family home, to Jordan Station cemetery.
