Full Text

The death occurred in Trinidad, British West Indies, on Oct. 26th of Rev. de la Rosa, for some years a resident of Grimsby, and later of St. Catharines, where he was rector for some time of St. Barnabas Church.

The reverend gentleman had been ill for a long period of time, and while he suffered terribly at times, he bore it all with a smile and a fortitude that was remarkable.

The deceased gentleman came to Canada and Grimsby about 20 years ago from Trinidad, but returned to his native land about 10 years ago. While in Grimsby he made many friends and was always willing at all times to place his ability behind any project that would further the interests of the district. He was deeply interested in music and while in Grimsby stages and directed a couple of operas, with all the cast, Grimsby and Beamsville people.

His funeral was held on October 27th and he was buried with full masonic honors. There was an immense crowd at the funeral including 14 ministers and a Bishop of the Anglican Church, of which he was an ordained minister. He was buried at San Fernando, where he first began his ministry.
