A resident of the Upper Thirty, John Dmtro Cherwyk, age 55, passed away Saturday at the Hamilton General Hospital. His passing came as a shock to a host of friends that deceased has made since he came to this district from western Canada some 4 years ago.

His survivors include his widow, Julia, and three daughters: Mrs. M.E. Johnson, Winnipeg; Mrs. J. Dzubinski, Flin Flon, Manitoba, and Miss Ophlia, at home.
Four brothers also survive: Nick, William and Fred, all of Norquay, Saskatchewan, and Michael of Winnipeg. Two sisters, Mrs. K. Poluck, Winnipeg, and Mrs. H. Kowall, Norquay, Saskatchewan.
Funeral services were held Monday from the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, Grimsby. Father William Fedak conducted the service. Casket bearers were Messrs. Nick and Michael Cherwyk, A. Romaniu, N. Kordash, Joe Kurytnik and Joe Lessey. Interment was made in Queen's Lawn Cemetery, Grimsby.
