Full Text

Charles Henry Prudhomme, president of C.H. Prudhomme and Sons Ltd., Nurseries, and a life-long resident of Beamsville, died at his home, Holmcroft, King St., West, early Saturday. His passing at the age of 65 followed an illness of long duration.

Owner of one of the oldest established fruit farms in Beamsville, Mr. Prudhomme combined exceptional executive ability with a personality which won the admiration and esteem of all with whom he came in contact.

Later he started the nursery company in Beamsville, building up a successful enterprise which was a tribute to his strength of will, industry and patience. Those who knew him long remember the nobility and humility of his character.

The deceased was a member of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, and at one time was on the Board of Managers. He was also a member of Ivy Lodge, No. 115, A.F. & A.M.; Hindo Koosh Grotto, I.O.O.F., and the various fruit and nurserymen's associations.

He is survived by his widow, the former Myrtle M. Greves, two sons, John G. and George C. Prudhomme, one brother, Harry, two grandsons, and one granddaughter, all of Beamsville.

Funeral services will be held this Thursday afternoon at 2:30 from his late home. Interment will be in Mount Osborne Cemetery.
