After an illness extending over a period of months, William Charles Balfour Mansion passed peacefully away on Wednesday afternoon.

Deceased was born in Hamilton on May 29th, 1879, and was in his 68th year. He was a son of the late William and Florence Nelles Manson. As a youth he followed in the footsteps of his father and entered the banking profession, which he left in 1919 when he came with the family to live permanently on their fine fruit farm on Nelles Road, North Grimsby.

Deceased gentleman was of quiet disposition, yet in his own way took a keen interest in all that was transpiring around him, particularly in community affairs and sport. He was a member of St. Andrew's Anglican Church.

He is survived by one sister, Mrs. F.M. Burnham, Grimsby.

Remains will rest at the Stonehouse Funeral Home until Friday morning when they will then rest at his late home, Lake Lawn, Nelles Road, until 2:30 p.m., when funeral services will be conducted by Rev. E.A. Brooks. Cremation will be at the Toronto Crematory.

Friends will gratefully decline from sending flowers.
