The death occurred suddenly in Detroit on Sunday evening of William Clarence Farrow, a former Grimsby resident, in his 48th year.
Deceased had attended a picture show on Sunday evening and feeling faint during the performance left his seat and went to the water cooler in the foyer for a drink where he suffered a seizure and collapsed. He was rushed to hospital but expired before reaching that institution.
Clarence Farrow was born in Grimsby, the second son of the late Wm. and Mrs. Farrow and was educated in Grimsby schools. He was familiarly known about town as "Scoop" through his several years' contact with people around The Independent office where he was office boy.
He went to Detroit 26 years ago and for a quarter of a century was a valued employee of the Dodge Motor Car Co.
He is survived by his widow, the former Josephine Nelson of Hamilton, two sons, John and William, and one daughter Joan; two brothers, Frank and Cecil of Grimsby, and one sister, Mrs. Fred (Marguerite) Yeo, of Hamilton.
The remains were brought to Grimsby on Tuesday and funeral services were conducted from the Stonehouse Funeral Home on Wednesday afternoon by Rev. W.J. Watt.
Casket bearers were Oliver Shaw, Roy Farrell, Claude Boden, Robert Johnson, James Gowland and Fred Schwab.
