Full Text

A well known and highly respected resident passed away at his home on Thursday night last, in the person of Arthur Percival Norton in his 64th year.

He was a son of the late Edwin H. and Mrs. Norton and was born and educated in Grimsby and resided here his entire life. He had been in failing health for the past two years but his death came unexpectedly and as a sudden shock to his wide circle of friends and acquaintances.

He was a moulder by trade and for some years had been a valued employee of Grimsby Stove and Foundry Co. He was an active member of Grimsby Baptist Church and was a member of the board of management and property committee of that church.

Surviving, besides his wife, the former Emma Ann Game, are four daughters and one son: Mrs. Geo. Konkle, Mrs. Alex Gillespie and Mrs. Harold Heaslip, all of Grimsby; Mrs. Harry Marsh, Hamilton, and Bert Norton, Grimsby; also four brothers, Edwin, of Grimsby; Charles, of Wilmington, Delaware; Fred and Roy, of Hamilton; and three sisters: Mrs. Nellie Caldwell, Dundas; Mrs. Alice Stewart and Mrs. Gordon McBride, of Grimsby.

Funeral services, which were largely attended, were conducted from his late residence, Ontario Street, on Monday afternoon, Rev. George McLean, of Grimsby Baptist Church officiating at the house and graveside. Interment was in Queen's Lawn Cemetery.

Casket bearers were R.D. Colpitts, Lloyd Simpson, Wm. Bengough, Milton Morris, Palmer Hill and Fred A. Oakes.
