A well known employee of the Town of Grimsby, James Scott, town teamster, suffered a sudden seizure on Wednesday morning and passed away before medical aid could reach him.

Deceased, along with Mike Sweet, was engaged in cutting down a tree on Murray Street when shortly before 11 o'clock he complained of not feeling well but after resting for a few minutes started work again. Shortly after 11 o'clock he decided to leave the job and return to the town work shop. In company with Sweet he was walking down the street and when in front of Henley's service station he suddenly collapsed and passed away.

The late Mr. Scott was born in Scotland 54 years ago and came to Canada with his family 42 years ago and then to Grimsby 15 years ago.

He is survived by his wife, the former Clara Cummings, one daughter, Ruby, and one son, James, both at home. His father, Samuel James Scott, Caledonia; two brothers, William of Glanford Station, and Allan of Caledonia; one sister, Mrs. Roy Walker of Caledonia also survive.

Remains are resting at the Stonehouse Funeral Home where service will be held on Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. Interment will be in Queen's Lawn Cemetery.
