On January 17, 1947, there passed away at the home of his youngest daughter, Joyce (Mrs. Ross Carbert), of Campbellville, Ontario, the Rev. H.W.A. Brand, after suffering a heart attack. Deceased was in his 81st year.
After coming to Canada from England nearly 40 years ago, and taking charge of various parishes in Manitoba, he moved to Ontario in 1914, and was Rector in turn at Nanticoke, York, Elora and Lowville, retiring in 1932; but after a few years he again took up active duty, this time in the Parish of Erin, where he remained until three or four years ago, when he came to live with Mrs. Carbert at Campbellville.
His wife, Henrietta Blair, predeceased him 16 months ago. Also surviving are two daughters and one son: Gladys (Mrs. Rolston) of Grimsby; Dorothy (Mrs. Ronald Paige) of Niagara Falls, Ontario; and Archer of Hamilton; one brother of Pontiac, Michigan, and three granddaughters.
Interment took place at St. George's Anglican Church, Lowville, on Tuesday.
